Announcement   October 2016... Restocking, and will be up to speed by October 16th. Thank you for your patience!

This shop is a snapshot of my work over the past dozen years and I am enjoying the gorgeous chaos (nature and art = Gorgeous Chaos, after all, yes?) that having all of the paths converge in one place creates. I love the process of discovery that is at the center of all of my art, and am most glad you are here. Here you will find The Mirror Project and The Environs.
It is my hope there is something in my work that holds a story for you. Enjoy! ~ Loree

STUDIO
If you are in the area, please come by my studio at the Troutdale Art Center!
903 E Historic Columbia River Highway; Troutdale OR 97060
Open Friday and Saturday 11-4, Sunday 12-3, and by appointment.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE OTHER SHOPS
(yes, there are other shops, and yes, you're invited)
In every shop you will find a focus of my work, including earrings, cards, prints, and original work.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The River Rocks
www.etsy.com/shop/TheRiverRocks

While the river is the heart and soul of my work, I haven't ever pulled all the pieces of what has come out of that love together in one place before, so working with this shop is working at the core of my heart. Every listing has a guest appearance from the pack (because dogs and the river and my sanity are all intertwined), so you can just stop by to browse the pups if you'd like.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
It's Only Black And White
https://www.etsy.com/shop/ItsOnlyBlackAndWhite

Sometimes, where things start is important. Where the life of my art started was in black and white. In 2000, I set up a studio in the old Springdale School to have a place to write. One day, in the lull of a story, while scribbling to get hand and brain moving together, I saw a glimmer in the scrawl that seemed like it was maybe something. The art took over from there like it had just been waiting in the background to be noticed.

This shop is the start of the gift my heart gave me, and it is the place where I get to come back to that beginning and find out what it is now. I look forward to traveling the distance there to here with you.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
BuzzArt
https://www.etsy.com/shop/BuzzArt

When you're craving color, this is the place to go for all things bright and beautiful! Abstract woodstain and ink, with jewelry and cards from both.

** NOTE that I am happy to combine listings from the other shops into one transaction if something strikes your fancy in more than one place, to save you on shipping costs. Shipping is always free on orders over $100! **

All the best,
Loree

The Magic Hidden In Nature

ARTIST NOTES

Sometimes, when the landscape changes, a thing in us shifts. Breaks loose, changes just enough. When two buildings fall and change a skyline, when wind and water change the face of a beloved town, when fire bares a hillside overlooking a city of dreams. There are moments when as simple a shift as a small bluff giving way and tumbling down onto a trail known to one person through fifteen hundred walks, can break that stuck thing loose.

Today was just that.

This trail, this forest, this spot on the river - this one small sweet spot - has always felt magic, mystic, mine. It is more than a sliver of me - I am a sliver of it.

Mirrors held up, mirrors gazed into,a chance reflection in a storefront window a darkened windshield that seals a thought.

There is more than this, but it is a beginning.

- Loree Harrell; 01.06.10... The Mirror Project inception


01.11.10


It is about the underneaths, the behinds, the things off to the left just next to where we can see. It is about the surrounding and inside of and the things too big, too scary in our not-knowing, to look at in their fullness. So we narrow our vision to small views of chaos, glance not gaze into the mirror, and see. We need you here.


01.14.10

By definition, a mirror can never show the same reflection twice. Not to any two people, not in any second glance. There is no stasis.

------------------------------------------------------------

After an extended hiatus from Etsy to focus on new creative and direct projects, I reopened this shop in September of 2013, with a new look for the new projects, much improved product, and time scheduled into The Plan to list daily. While most of my sales are direct and at the gallery and shows, I appreciate the opportunity to be here and introduce my work to new eyes, and to discover artists and artisans I wouldn't have otherwise found.

"The Mirror Project" and the "Environs" are created from the small landscapes I walk through every day. Both of these projects are a complete delight to work with - a visual manifestation of the magic I have always felt out on my hikes to the river and the mountain and the Gorge.

The jewelry started as a way to wear my work to the day job (GM at a hotel on the edge of the beautiful Columbia Gorge), and I started getting requests as soon as I did, so making jewelry from my art is now an ongoing project after we're out of the woods and the dogs are fed.

I hope that you will discover something in my work you haven't looked at in just that way before.

All the best to you,
Loree

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The "Environs" project is an exploration of the images hidden just beyond sight in the beauty of the environments we walk through.

Environs was birthed in the congruence of The Mirror Project and The Color Project. Mirrors are shifted to grayscale, printed with archival inks on matte art paper, then hand-colored with woodstains and inks.

Project Inception June, 2013

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

"The Mirror Project" is a photographic exploration of what is hidden just outside of our sight behind the trees, between the rocks, under the rivers, beside the oceans, over the mountains. The Mirrors are not about the reflection of self in other, but rather about the reflection of self in self, the joining of halves, the discovery of what is hidden in the conjunctions. - Loree Harrell

    River, mountain, forest, Gorge, another river, and dogs. My daily hikes in the beauty I live in is what forms and feeds my art and my words.

  • Nadine and King

    Moral Support

    Nadine is 14 now, and doesn't go with us to the river any more, but those bad hips don't keep her from being a happy hooty dog. Beautiful girl and responsible for the whole pack. King (10) is Nadine's son . Love all my dogs but he is my heart.

  • Max and Ebb

    Break Management

    Max (left) & Ebb are King's sons with Rosie, our Aussie friend. Haven't spent a day apart since they were conceived and it shows. They occasionally spend a night in the forest (and make sure I get out of the studio and off for a hike every day).

Production partners

  • Bay Photo

    San Francisco, CA

    Bay Photo does all of my metal printing. All prints are shipped to me for inspection and signature before repacking and sending them to you (no drop ship requests, please). At this time I am listing only prints that are currently in inventory.

  • David, Printer

    VA, United States

    David does a beautiful job on all of my larger format printing and needlepoint canvases. He is a delight to work with, and I am grateful to have him in my corner.

    Matt and John are my local printers for cards and coloring projects, and much appreciated.

Thank you for your interest in my work - it is my great good pleasure to have my work so intimately entwined with the rest of my life. Every day as I hike through the forest to the river, or glance out the window to see a bare tree outlined against a sky full of cobble-stoned clouds, I am reminded that I am living in the middle of The Mirror Project and the Environs and general beauty.

Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS
Custom orders from my work are most welcome. If you wish a different size print, your favorite Environ on earrings that don't currently exist, a pendant to match the earrings, or a special needlepoint canvas, message me. Note that I only source from my own work, so am unable to work with your or other artists' images.

On any custom work, you will receive a message with image prior to shipping to approve the design, and I'll work with you on up to three designs until the piece is as you wish it to be (any pieces you decline will be listed). The only returns accepted on custom orders are in the event of a failure in the building of them. See above.
