About Us

Vicki Dodge was born in the South, raised

in the Pacific Northwest, and holds a Master

of Arts from Central Washington University.

She spent a lifetime creating art in

stoneware, fiber, oil paint, photography

jewelry, and most recently, mosaics. She

made a living as a professional potter at
Barncat Pottery in Roslyn, WA; was
artist-in-residence for a number of

Eastern Washington schools; and taught

pottery as economic development for the Peace Corps in the islands of the Palau group in Micronesia. Vicki owned the Riverside Gallery in Everett, Washington, helped establish the Snohomish County Crafts Guild, and helped create Everett's first major arts and crafts fair. Vicki's extensive knowledge and love of plants (and design) led her to the study of Chinese flower arrangement. She has served in many volunteer arts organizations, including as a docent at both the Bellevue Botanical Gardens and the Museum of Northwest Art in La Conner. Vicki continues to laugh, live, and create every day.

 

Mark Dodge was born in Pennsylvania,

spent three years as a ceramics major in

the Fine Arts program at Edinboro State

University, and moved to Washington state

in the 70s. He later finished his BA

at Antioch University Seattle, after a

season on commercial salmon boat and

in between tours during a 10-year

professional music career in touring rock

and country bands. He records and produces

personal projects and plays in several local

bands. Mark worked with professional clients and volunteer organizations, creating advertising and PR campaigns, studio photography, social media, editing, copywriting, event and concert management, and served on the boards of the Alpaca Association of Western Washington, the Stanwood-Camano Music Festival, and the Stanwood-Camano Arts Guild. He recently retired from a 25-year career as a professional writer and editor of software books and documentation. Three of those years were spent editing, analyzing, and writing emergency operations plans for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Mark still plays music every day.
