John Ebner

About four weeks prior to the Studio Tour, John made an art related trip to Tuscany to gather photos of countryside and small villages. This is a church in Assisi, painted in watercolor. John will be in the SUMMER ARTS JAM in downtown Stanwood, July 12-13-14.

Bobbie Mueller

There is a brand new little art venue on Camano Island, "Beach 1 Gallery," at the Camano Country Club clubhouse (1243 Beach Drive), and Camano Arts Association members are invited to exhibit there.

Bobbie Mueller's  watercolors will be there all during the month of June.  She would love it if you would drop by! They are open all days of the week.

Bobbie is a signature member of Northwest Watercolor Society. She is represented by Seattle's Fountainhead Gallery on Queen Anne ( and her work can be seen occasionally at Matzke Gallery.

Nicki Wight

"I teach two watercolor classes each week, so I get quite a bit of painting done. Here are two I have recently finished. I am just about to start a huge painting of Chihuly glass, combining two pictures...we'll see how that works!

Monday I teach a more advanced class from 10am-1pm and every other Saturday is a beginner/advanced class from 10am-1pm. I teach at my home studio."

Diana Yakowitz

For the third year in a row Diana Yakowitz has participated in the yearly June photo shoot and fundraiser for The Photographic Center Northwest (PCNW) in Seattle. Her image "Consider-Tiny Fences, La Conner, WA" was selected and printed by PCNW for a Gallery show and for selection by a person donating $250 the first hour, $150 the second hour, ..., $25 the last hour, during the 4 hour Fundraiser party Saturday June 15 at the Center. She attended, donated to the event also, and someone selected her image for their donation too. Great event that she will participate in next year too.

She will also participate in the Guilded Gallery's Booth at this year's Art by the Bay event August 10 and 11.

Arnold Ronning did not participate in this year's studio tour. Instead, he accepted a position as art teacher at Mount Vernon Christian School. These are three examples he did as demonstrations for his students.

Watercolor has been my medium of choice for the last 20 years. My latest series is rendered on a slick substrate known as YUPO. The “Ebb and Flow” Series involves the flow of water and paint to form organic images, shapes and textures. As in the natural world, water is the key element. Each painting evolves in a unique way-depending on the amount of water and paint used and also the use of gravity to push the flow throughout. As a recent transplant from Chicago, I am eager to explore the possibilities here on Camano island. The ever changing skies, mountains and water are a painter’s dream. I look forward to being a part of this very vibrant community of creatives.


Bonnie Eckley

I’ve been artistic and creative my whole life. While starting a career in healthcare in the 80’s, I began painting coworker’s and physician’s homes with murals and faux finishes. Once the jobs started becoming more complex, I was inspired to get formal training in finishes, and started E paint design in 2005. Over the years I spent more time and education on my career, than on my love for art. After a 30 year career I made the decision to drastically change my direction and now work part time for a non-profit and spend more time on E paint design.

My husband, dogs, and I moved to Camano Island 3 months ago and I am thrilled to become part of this amazing art community that I’ve always admired from afar. I enjoy using recycled material to create garden art, signs, holiday decorations, canvas requests, and whimsical pet portraits. I also enjoy designing my own patterns when sewing. Anything that engages my love of color and creating, makes me happy! 


Jaime Wickstrom

My love for drawing and painting began very early in my childhood and after having children of my own, my passion for art really started to blossom. Being a homemaker since our kids were born has given me an appreciation for the sweet simple things of life and those are the moments I aim to capture in my illustrations. I like to think of it as, "everyday with a touch of whimsy!" My art mediums of choice for illustrating are usually a combination of watercolors, watersoluable artist crayons or art markers, followed by layers of rich colored pencil. When time permits, I like to paint larger work with acrylics on canvas such as personalized art for children's rooms or landscape scenes. Both my husband Eric and I have been blessed to grow up on beautiful Camano Island following generations before us, and we love being able to raise our children Ellie and Luke here. Now that our kids are getting older it felt like the right time for me to join in on the amazing art community Camano provides. I look forward to being a part of CAA!
