Ron Von Hess

Ron Von Hess is a world traveling father, entertainer, artist, US Army Veteran, toy and merchandise designer and animal rescuer. He started doing abstract art 14 years ago developing his own style based on vivid color perception . After his daughter's untimely death 5 years ago he stopped painting for 4 years recovering from it's aftermath. He now donates a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of his art to save local unwanted pets and to women and children shelters in his daughter's name. His last painting at that time , CASSIE , was her spirit working through him and by far his favorite looking like an abstract version of his daughter's doll she carried everywhere.

Paintings are $80.00 with 20 percent of profits going to these charities. Paintings can be purchased at Ronbuddahsutherland@hotmail.com at PayPal

We are amateur photographers who have always enjoyed taking pictures of nature wherever we go. Last year we took a trip to the Olympic peninsula. We love that area of Washington because it is so very unique. We visited the Hoh Rain Forest, Ruby Beach, and Beach #1. They are all part of Olympic National Park. So many places of great beauty are in that area. We love getting out in nature and finding unique things to photograph. As you walk along the trails in the Hoh Rain Forest it is easy to feel that you are on a different planet. The huge trees and hanging moss everywhere lend an aura of mystique to everything. It’s great fun to imagine different images in stumps and trees. The beaches are great places to watch for unique rocks and pieces of driftwood. Beach #1 in particular has massive burls on the spruce trees. Again, it is so fun to use your imagination and look for images.

None of our photographs have been altered in any way. They are our creative vision of the beauty we found in the Pacific Northwest. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as we enjoyed taking them. Use your imagination and look for new images that we didn’t see.

Trish Cole’s passion for art started at a very young age.  Her mom even sent her to summer camps for art, in elementary school. She is passionate about the outdoors, gardening and the Pacific Northwest. This is imbued in all of her art. Trish attended the University of Washington and Burnley School of Art. She practiced as a free lance graphic designer, for several years. But quickly determined fine art, and various mediums of expression, were where her heart lay.

"Art is a way to express the passion, and love of every emotion and experience in life. It is a way to diffuse, explore. and express tumultuous changes in society and humanity."
