Nearly every visitor to Click! notices the wire bird sculptures on the walls and is struck by their "3-D line drawing" quality. Shelli Markee is the artist who draws them, and she is our Featured Artist for April!
Her newest works shifts from fauna to flora. She'll be at Click for West Seattle Art Walk this Thursday April 13, 6–9pm.
How would you describe what you make?
I draw with wire.
Can you tell us about your favorite piece in the current collection?
I really like the large poppies. Large and open with a little detail that I enjoy.
If you could collaborate with anyone (living or not), who would it be and why?
When you are in the studio, what are you listening to?
My favorite music right now is a band called Daughter. I also am listening to kind loving Patrick Watson.
What is your most treasured handmade possession?
I have been collecting artwork from friends and family members for years along with gifts from nature... sticks & rocks that I love. But I would have to say that the work that my boys make is my most treasured. They draw portraits of themselves every year for Christmas. I love them so.
