Ben has two abstract photography series on display that focus on movement and color. The first, “Night Rider”, features night shots of
Seattle taken from a moving car. The electric display of patterns comes from a variety of both car and shutter speeds, as well as multiple camera positions. The second series, “Water Colors”, captures the vibrant reflections from boats and buildings in local marinas, including the Edmonds waterfront.

Edmonds Mural Society

Celebrating the beauty, history and people of Edmonds with artscapes throughout the city.

The Edmonds Mural Society has chosen five murals to raise summer 2011. This is one of them called “Flying Heron” by Sue Coccia.

Award winning Northwest artist Sue Coccia is from Edmonds, Washington.

Sue’s Grandmother’s Grandmother was Native American, and that tiny bit of heritage has had a large influence on her art. Indigenous art, and its relationship with the animal worlds has also influenced Sue’s unique style. A deep love of all animals was instilled at a very young age and Sue has dedicated her life’s work to them. She has a formal art training background, however she was truly inspired by her high school art teacher, d’Elaine Johnson, an internationally recognized artist.

She enjoys her family, meditation and the artistic process. Also, she is an avid gardener, and a black belt in TaekwonDo.

For more information visit Sue’s website: Earth Art International
