Javier S. Ortega was born in Seville Spain, where he attended  “Escuela de Artes Aplicadas” and worked on the restoration of “Plaza España de Sevilla¨ which gave him the oportunity to travel to Florence to continue his education in sculpture under the Leonardo Da Vinci Scholarship. Upon completion, his time was divided between the cities of Seville, Valencia and the island of Menorca as he began having his first shows.  After this, he moved to the city of Seattle where he continues his career exhibiting his work in some of the cafes and galleries scattered around the city.

From Dayna:

I’m a self taught artist who works primarily with clay and acrylic paint. I have a shop on Etsy called WhimsyCalling, which has been up and running for a year. Most of my work is very whimsical, hence the shop name. I tend to make a lot of human-like figures and animals with human qualities. I like animals in clothes.

A lot of my work could be children’s decor, but I also tend toward a more creepy, slightly goth side. One of my biggest inspirations is Tim Burton, especially The Nightmare Before Christmas. However, I strive to keep the imagery of my work completely unique and from my own head. It’s one of the reasons I’ve avoided art classes.

I feel the process of creating something should come from oneself and express their unique way of perceiving the world, weather it be reality or in their dreams. Most of my dreams are so full of fantastic images, sometimes I wonder where they come from. Eventually, I’ll find a way to express better what my imagination is capable of, but for now I have these little snippets.
