▽ El is a self-taught queer artist who has lived in the Seattle area her entire life. She primarily utilizes digital mediums for creating meaningful art pieces reflecting her perspective and vision. Her style incorporates muted tones, texture, and value. Spending hours upon hours cooped up in her room or at a local coffee shop, she dedicates most of her time into creating and using her art as her primary voice. Much of her art is inspired by queer love, highlighting social justice topics and influential lgbtq+ folx through history. www.digitelart.com + instagram.com/digitel.art/
▽ elizabeth maria ortega is printmaker. They use the medium of linoleum carving and printing. Each of her pieces are hand drawn, carved and printed. Each print is an ode to the wisdom of the land, plants, creatures and spirit. Their work serves as a reminder to listen. To listen and be mindful of where you come from: who your ancestors are, what’s around you, who’s around you and to look beyond yourself to see your place in a greater cosmic order. The creativity that inspires her work is cultivated from a deep admiration of the interconnectedness of all things.
▽ Erica Sterling is a film photographer and queer artist creating intimate images of the humans she knows and encounters. Her work focuses on creating relationships in the queer community through spending time with her subjects and fostering an environment where people feel comfortable being themselves. Her images are soft and grainy- colorful and sometimes painterly. More than anything she wants to develop trust with the folks she photographs and give trust back- to create an experience that allows each individual to feel empowered and understood.

▽ Marissa Sohn is an artist, enthusiast, and general obsessor living and working in the Seattle area. Her passion for the arts brought her to Cornish College of the Arts in 2011 where she began exploring her sense of identity and experience as a biracial, queer, woman in America. Over the decade her work has included a wide range of media such as photography, video, performance, installation, sculpture, wearable/textile works, and in the last 5 years she’s found a love for jewelry making. She discovered a unique sense of empowerment in wearing something she created herself, and hopes others can feel the same sense of confidence when wearing her pieces. She gravitates towards working with gemstones and finds inspiration in their organic structures to create one-of-a-kind pieces. Instagram: @marsmadejewelry / Website: marissasohn.com
