This month we wanted to celebrate an artist from the creative city of Portland. Rachel Denny is is a truly innovative artist whose use of various media for her pieces is breathtaking. What Ji and I love most about Denny is her honoring of nature in her work and her challenging of humans to be aware of the impact they have on nature in such a artistic and non-abrasive way. Each of her unique pieces are handmade in her studio and her talent is clear in not only the beautiful lifelike shapes of animals and flora she creates, but her extremely creative and distinct way of bringing them to life with various material. Ji and I believe that choosing the right media makes all the difference in a creative piece and admire artists like Rachel Denny who have the mastered so many different types and techniques.
