12 Women Artists in their Studios – Bend, Oregon

Where does the creative magic happen? Artist studios aren’t always public so it can be hard to get a glimpse into their work spaces. Culture Seen got an exclusive look into the studios of 12 women artists living and working in Bend, Oregon. I bet you didn’t realize Bend had an amazing art community. The community is known for beer and tourism but creativity is flowing through the veins of this small mountain town.

When asked what her medium is: “I create work that arises from God knows where… really, not a clue, and that is the fun part… I start working with my materials and then something sparks or tickles or urgently requests that I give it a go.  I usually meditate a bit before the studio day begins, but from there things often get challenging.  A teacher I had once said to just “pay attention” to every inch of the work, and I find that true.  I want to make work that is enlivening for the viewer, not just a mental construct, so, the challenge, in my process, is to stay awake to what is emerging.”
