Life is Short...Live creatively

In the Pacific Northwest, on the West side of Washington State, on Puget Sound, just on the outskirts of Gig Harbor, floating on a tiny island, nestled inside a log cabin, contemplating next to a wood stove, over a cup of coffee; an idea was creatively. After that...the rest was easy. Shadows took shape, colors burned brighter, excitement grew...and plans, real plans were made.

In the beginning I dreamed about silk screening...
...the dreaming phase was very pleasant...
...then I tried silk screening and got very messy...
...and very frustrated...
...much cursing and gnashing of teeth...
...many more hours silk screening...
...getting a little better with each little bit of it...
...and much much better, with each large volume of it...
...and then...after many passes of the squeegee... screening started to become awesome...
...and now...
...I live creatively Every. Single. Day.

Shiloh lives creatively with...
*pillow cases
*random pieces of paper

I print on ethically made/acquired materials...because it's not very much fun living creatively if it's at someone else's expense now is it?

Thanks for stopping by...and remember, life is creatively
