The artist's world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he
lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep.

Hayslette-Hill & Valley #1, 24x36
Welcome back Carrie! After being on the road for six weeks, both the artist and her new pieces have made their way back to the gallery. Take advantage of these early spring days to come by and say hello to Carrie's colorful creatures and sweet miniature spring wardrobe illustrations (see below), mostly painted on the road during her travels to the sunshine. Or perhaps take a stroll through the lush landscapes painted by Max Hayslette and stylized coastal abstractions by Christopher Mathie. If the weather has you down, you can find a piece of spring here in the gallery!

Whether changing from capris to a tailored dress for dinner at home, a ladylike suit for a trip to the local bank, Easter Sunday in hat and gloves, or evening out in my favorite - her gold lamèdress, I enjoyed seeing my glamorous mother's outfits.Turquoise, gold, purple, kelly and lime green - she knew how to accessorize for her red hair. Since childhood, I have been fascinated by fashion and began in kindergarten drawing crayon figures with colorful clothing; adding pages of colored pencil fabric swatch drawings in grade school. At 12 I was gifted a 1912 New Home treadle sewing machine and my mother taught me to sew. I later graduated to her Singer and began haunting Esther's Fabric Shop on Bainbridge Island. By high school, I was making my own version of couture; creating three-piece suits- adding chain to the inner jacket lining so it would hang well, pinning my flat-felled seam trousers on inside-out so they would fit like a glove, creating filmy french-seamed dresses cut on the bias, covered buttons and bound buttonholes and hand-sewn lingerie. I taught others to sew and did well in Home Economics. I still own some of my creations as well as some high school fashion illustrations, several of which were actually made into clothing. It seems natural to return to my early artistic endeavors - whether whimsical, vintage or current, I love fashion illustration and hope you enjoy my spring detour. I would like to thank my wondrous mother for encouraging my creativity and for passing on her red hair and freckles. ~Carrie Goller~

Pacific Northwest mother and artist. I work from two studios, one at an old farm house in the Scandanavian village of Poulsbo for encaustic and the other -- a beach house overlooking Hood Canal for oil and sculpture.
