Art by Carrie Tasman
Carrie paints vistas and views from our beautiful mid-Willamette Valley. She grew up in a magical world mostly outdoors, climbing apple trees, playing games in the street, ice skating, busily exploring, discovering, and day dreaming (and doing chores too, of course!).
Carrie's sketchbooks are full of flowers, leaves, bugs and butterflies, birds, vases and vistas, sunsets, and cloud formations, which fuel her paintings and bring her joy every day.

Nature's Light Press
Angelyn's early upbringing in Southeast Chicago within the folds of a colorful Greek family has been an inspiration for her writing and artwork. She has taught English Language Learners, Reading, and Kindergarten, and has studied art at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
A member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon, the Corvallis Art Guild, and Vistas and Vineyards, Angelyn has created art that has been juried into numerous exhibitions.
Her novel, Stand a Little Out of My Sun, has been inspired, not only by Angelyn’s background, but also by the many children who have touched her life.
Jessie uses both graphic design and some AI to create beautiful posters, prints, and stickers to bring her powerful imagination to life. The advent of technology has really made art more accessible to her in a way that she hadn’t had when she was younger.
Print Odyssey features a collection that is not only visually stunning but also unique and reflective of the contemporary fusion of art and technology meticulously developed using cutting-edge AI and graphic design techniques.
