Shanalee Hampton learned to embroider as a child but never took the skill very seriously until she realized she could use her powers for good. She has spent the last three years stitching art inspired by pop culture, literature, and sometimes spirituality. Her current series is inspired by her love for Japanese horror and mythology. She wants her embroidery hoops to provide you with a good laugh or maybe the pep talk you need. She lives in SE Portland with her husband, Shampton, where they make things every single day
Join us for the Ballard Art Walk featuring one of Monster's favorite artists, Mallory Milke of MayhemHere Art! Her zoo of zentangle animal paintings are sure to charm you and your family and will be ready to adopt for your walls! There will be FREE coloring pages of Mallory's zentangle animals available at the event for you to color in the shop or at home, plus delicious refreshments will be provided!
I'm inspired by things I love, like mischievous creatures, Pretty Dark things and bright whimsy colors. I do a variety of styles but love bright colors and animals the most, adding a slight whimsical feeling to owls, Lions, Lemurs and any other creature that tickles my fancy.
Our love story with Ballard begins on February 16th with our grand STILL OPEN party & our first Ballard Art Walk as the new owners of Monster Art, Clothing & Gifts.
Our featured artist: Danny Mansmith will be showing his intricately stitched work and providing a demonstration of his process.
Sublime Stitching is providing iron-on embroidery patterns and we'll help our guests get started stitching with a basic hand embroidery lesson.
The first 25 people to arrive will receive a gift bag full of goodies.
Snacks and drinks will be provided.
