It’s well known that Portland is blessed with loads of creative talent. Over the years, Rejuvenation’s appreciation for handcraft has allowed us to forge connections with several local artists. We’re excited and proud to to present the work of four of our favorites, which will be on display and available for purchase at Rejuvenation’s Portland store from now through January.
Rachel’s hand-framed paintings, note cards, and prints depict the overlap between the natural and urban landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. She begins with found city maps, and overlays them with bucolic images of canoes, birds, and trees using acrylic medium, oil paint, and ink. Rachel also creates custom map paintings, so clients can personalize their own piece.

A multi-disciplinary artist, Beth uses a unique blend of photography and printmaking to create her images of architecture, urban details, and fleeting moments. Beth’s compelling montage-like works of Portland’s urban landscape and skyline convey a strong sense of place. Each is unique, and she limits her print runs to under 100.

Steve believes that the vessels we use in our everyday life should feel as alive as our surroundings – and his handcrafted pieces reflect that ideal. Well-versed in several ceramic traditions, Steve creates utilitarian pottery designed to nurture us aesthetically and physically. From dramatic vases to countertop composters, his pieces look lovely, work well, and feel good to the touch.

Megan Oser and Erin Albin are the sister duo behind Appetite, a local shop where they design, cut, sew, and hand-print stylish, utilitarian pieces for the home. Created out of organic, scrap, and repurposed material, many of the designs’ color, textures, and shapes are inspired by the natural world, giving the pieces a harmonious feel.
