Melissa Cole (October 2012)Christine Deubel (Exhibit April 2012 & April 2013)
- Moonlight Kisses
- Artist Melissa Cole often finds herself snorkeling with salmon, smooching manatees, and swimming with tiger sharks. It is from these amazing encounters that she derives much of her inspiration for her vividly colored, heavily textured and patterned acrylic paintings. Cole was born in Oregon and raised in London, Hong Kong, and India. She graduated from Oregon State University with a degree in Zoology. She has spent time working in the Peace Corps in the Dominican Republic in environmental education, as a dive guide in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, and as a naturalist guide in Baja, Mexico. She has written over 30 children's natural history books and travels with her husband Brandon, who is a wildlife photographer specializing in marine life.
- Christina Deubel
Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. This self taught, painting artist has been creating artwork for most of her life. In 2011 she became a full time artist and was able to truly stretch her wings and her own personal boundaries. The work of this Spokane Artist is an expression of color, emotion and feeling that brings the viewer in and entices them to learn the story behind each piece. Her style varies from still life paintings, fly fishing artwork and surreal expressionism. "The release I get from painting is the perfect form of expression for someone bursting with emotion but unlikely to express it on a daily basis."
