Artist, illustrator, and graphic designer
Kristien Ziska now lives in Seattle, but originally hails from the Arizona desert. This dichotomy of climates touches on the contrast in her interests, inspiration, and company she keeps and has been constant theme throughout her life. Ziska is horrible at sitting still and is currently in pursuit of balance and the ever-evasive virtue…PATIENCE. She enjoys producing art via watercolor, gauche, acrylic, pen and pencil, and digital prints. She is lover of babes, the desert, the universe, time and space, champagne, international friend visits, her beavers, crystals, moons, Egyptian symbolism, and kitty cats. As she reaches proper adulthood she is realizing her interests trend closer to that of her true self at 9 years old.

Art & Soul
2860 NW Market Street

Robin Siegl makes oil paintings inspired by the industrial waterfront she sees regularly in frequent rowboat trips. The Duwamish River, Ballard ship canal and parts of Lake Union are her favorite places to investigate the enormous bulk of ships and barges. The wiggly water on which they float reflects marked-up, heavily worn surfaces and massive shapes, providing endless ideas for paintings. Siegl strives to convey the beauty in this subject, one that is not often thought of as beautiful. This exhibit includes five new paintings on heavy square paper, some exploring her new favorite subject; the thin line of light between two adjoining barges.

Shai Steiner
considers herself so lucky to be able to combine her two greatest loves: animals and art. Drawing from an education in graphic design and photography, plus her experience as an equestrian instructor, Steiner was able to create a painting style that perfectly encompassed the strongest passions in her life. Using only bright colors enables Steiner to bring forth the life and spirit of each animal. A limited color palette puts the focus on the personality of each subject and creates an enjoyable challenge. What this artist enjoys most is meeting and spending time with these extraordinary animals and their people. Her work strives to celebrate the spirit of all animals and capture their ability to make us smile.
Let her capture the essence of your beloved friend.

Miro Tea
5405 Ballard Avenue NW

Though Mary Kay Nespeca was born in New York and grew up in Ohio, she has lived in Seattle for 26 years.
A registered nurse, she was always drawn to the arts and humanities and in 2003, she enrolled in an encaustic painting workshop at Pratt Fine Arts Center. She immediately bonded with this most rewarding medium, which uses pigments mixed with hot wax that are burned in as an inlay. Since then, Nespeca acquired a Fremont studio where she makes art and keeps a very fine mess. This series of paintings is an exploration of how the wood, wax, pigment, paper and tea become the torso in motion. The process of fusing the separate components and then scraping away the wax, gives form not only to the figure, but to other works as well.

Although PJ Andrews' immediate influences are Jackson Pollack and Andy Warhol, his animated work comes straight from the source - cartoons and cartoon characters. Believing characters such as Tweety and Captain Caveman to be larger than life, his rendition of these characters is accented with glitter.
Though simple to the point of elegant, PJ’s “diamond dust” efforts offer a new dimension to animation. Passionate about pop art, he believes that by applying his techniques to some of the most beloved animation icons in history, these characters are given the superstar appearance they truly deserve.

The Scoop at Walter's

Please welcome self-taught artist Ron Torgeson to his first artwalk appearance! This show of recent oil paintings feature people, landscapes and animals. Ranging in size from 11 x 14 inches to 36 x 48 inches, his pieces are executed in bold colors and loose brush strokes. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Torgeson's style is a reaction to the somber grey color pallet we are
immersed in throughout much of the year.
