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.”

Mariaugh Maestas

“My partner Zach Warnes wrote this and recorded it while I was pregnant with our daughter. It was a time of significant transition for us both, and a lot of anxiety for him. I sang back up vocals, and I love this song.”

Melissa Daw

“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.”
