Artist Spotlight: Tracy Boyd

Today’s featured Inscape artist is painter Tracy Boyd. She works with oils and acrylic to produce her powerful  large-scale paintings.  

Boyd says “ Painting is a very physical and emotional process for me. Through trial and error, the painting evolves through many phases to completion as I search for and recognize the most damaging, loving, and recognizable “being”in it.”

Check out her website for more information:

Come meet Tracy during the Inscape Open Studios event on Sat Nov. 12th, 2011. Stay tuned for the next artist spotlight.

Artist Spotlight: Patti Bowman

As we all gear up for the upcoming Open Studios event here at INSCAPE I thought I would take time out to introduce you to some of the other artists that occupy the spaces here. The image above was created by encaustic painter, Patti Bowman, who will have her door open on the 4th floor.

With a style that I would call “earthy urbanism”, Bowman demonstrates an amazing level of control over the typically unruly medium of encaustic. Her paintings were recently on display at the Tashiro Kaplan building in Seattle. 

Check out her website for more images and information: and come see her lovely works in person on Sat Nov. 12th. Building open from 11am to 7pm. Stay tuned for some additional highlights featuring the work of other INSCAPE artists.

Studio Update

INSCAPE ARTS | Open Studios... It’s already been a year since I relocated my studio to Inscape and it’s also been that long since the entire building opened up to the general public. So break out your calendars and save the date for Saturday, November 12, 2011 and the Inscape Arts Open Studios event in Seattle. Come see how artists and creative thinkers continue to transform the former I.N.S. Building into Seattle’s next premier enclave of creative enterprise. Look for me in studio 108 on the 1st floor. 

Happening right now in the studio… I am finishing up a large commission for the Virginia Mason Medical Center and working on some small experiments with a focus on color. The image above is a detail of the foreground painting shown below. I have always favored an autumnal pallet . Can't get enough of these warm colors and spiked pod forms that continue to fascinate me.

More to come... Stay tuned for updates and a look at some of the other artists who are working at Inscape.
