Furniture Maker, PLANK Manager

Tiffany spent most of her life all over the East coast; Virginia, New York and Atlanta. She has been happily residing in Seattle since 2013 with her husband, son and dog. You can find more of her work at tiffanyju.com as well as her side hustles at chunks.shop and bzrshop.com.
In 2018, Tiffany Ju began to focus on her art practice with a series of weavings made from hand dyed nylon. Tiffany had spent the prior seven years establishing her own business with making and dyeing clothing so the shift in a more fine arts direction was a natural evolution. Her current work lies somewhere between craft and soft sculpture. Aesthetically, Tiffany’s work is always expressed through color, shapes and texture. Her methodology is rooted in craft, particularly dyeing and weaving. She aims to transform her weavings into something different through unconventional techniques, materials and scale.
Dawn Endean has exhibited at the Bellevue Arts Museum in Bellevue Washington and the Turner Print Museum in Sacremento CA, and in many Seattle galleries including the Jacob Lawrence Gallery, the Tashiro Kaplan Gallery, the Columbia City Gallery and Good Arts Gallery as well as at the Northwind Arts Center in Port Townsend, Mighty Tieton in Tieton Washington, and Gallery 25 in Fresno California.
Endean’s printmaking process involves building layers using a combination of intaglio plates, painting on plexiglass and collaging. Because of the intricacy of this layering, she works primarily in monoprints or small series of related prints. She currently teaches Printmaking at the Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle and at the BARN on Bainbridge Island. View her work at www.dawnendean.com or on Instagram @EndeanDawn
