Hi, we love you, and we’re getting through this together. Here are 10 artists (musicians, writers, comedians, poets and more) that want to make you smile today. This will be a running series as long as we get entries. Please send your art to firstname.lastname@example.org. ❤

Teresa Ettle is a collage artist living on Bainbridge Island.
“I buy vintage and antique paper, books, magazines and everything in between. I cut them all up, never making copies because a great deal of the fun for me is imagining who held the sheet music from the 1920s, or who hand colored the flowers from the German book well over 150 years ago.”
My name is Kayla Cabe.
“I have lived in Seattle since 2013; Originally from Cartersville, Georgia. I love the artist community here and the beautiful scenery. I mostly work with acrylic paint but I’m always experimenting with new mediums and techniques.”
“I consider myself a digital loiterer. I see digital content as the modern readymade – an image of Duchamp’s urinal instead of the urinal.”
Ashley Topacio is a multidisciplinary artist born and living in Seattle.

Tara McDermott lives in West Seattle, am a member of Columbia City Gallery (now closed), and has a studio at Inscape Arts Building.
“I work from my Idaho Falls home making custom leather goods (I’m originally from Seattle!) I make mostly guitar straps, but I also do bags, wallets, and anything else I can squeeze in.
This is a recent guitar strap I made for a friend. He and his wife named their daughter Parson after Gram Parsons from the Byrds. This is a tribute to her and her namesake.”
