About a million years ago, Julie Jacobson, Amy Hevron and I worked as graphic designers at a lovely Seattle firm by the name of Werkhaus. Sadly, Werkhaus is no longer around, but I feel very fortunate for the professional opportunities and the personal friendships that I developed while there. Amy and Julie are now working in mixed media painting and I am a huge fan of both of them. I proudly own one of Amy's first original paintings on wood, Darius the Monkey!

Anyway, the three of us were delighted to be invited to participate in a group show by the fabulously talented dynamo Laura Zeck at her Edmonds-based gallery and shop, ZINC Art + Object. We have all previously participated in solo shows at ZINC, but this group effort has been very special. Our only limitation was to create the work on 6" x 6" panels. I'm excited to view all 36 pieces hung together and hope to see some of my local friends and fans at the opening reception this Thursday night, from 5-8pm. The show will be up through December 12, for those who miss the opening. Let me know if you see a piece you want, but can't get to Edmonds. Some have already been reserved.

Entomology series by Misha Zadeh. 12 original 6"x6" acrylic ink paintings with gold detailing on watercolor paper, mounted on 1.5" wood panels. Each fantastical insect is paired with a positive trait like 'compassion', 'integrity', 'wit','humility'.

Here are a few of the images. All will be added to my licensing portfolio after the show. Contact me to see more.
