Resin Tiles discontinued and replaced As of April 2023, resin tiles will be discontinued / phased out and replaced with sublimation tiles.  If you do not know what sublimation is, it's a process that allows the ink to be "cooked" at 401 degrees into a sublimation specific tile with a heating press.  This process will now allow me to offer my tiles for sale on line and have a quicker turn around time. Example of what the tiles look like.  All tiles will continue to have a cork backing.

Art Resin This year I decided to add a new medium to my artwork ArtResin,  .  I've enjoyed working with it and will continue to use it as I find it adds value to my work and gives it a very polished look.  If you plan on trying resin, I have a few tips for you that will save you some time. 

First, use painters tape and cover the back of the wood panel.  Then, I prepared my image by using an archival adhesive to attach it to my wood panel.  I like to add texture and embellish with a little bit of acrylic.



Next, I gather all the items needed to begin the process.  (Gloves, Resin, spatula, Hardener, torch, measuring cup, toothpicks, and something to lift your art piece off the counter.) 


I then mix equal parts of resin and hardener for at least 3 minutes.  When it comes time to pour, I like to do my edges first.  I smear the resin on with my fingers until the edges are completely covered.  I have found if I let it just drip down the sides and then rub it in, I end up missing spots and have to redo the whole thing. 



When all the edges are covered, I then place the image on cups or shot glasses to balance it off the ground. Then the fun begins.





I like to use a spatula to move the resin around.  Make sure everything is covered, especially the corners and edges or you'll end up doing the

whole piece over again. 



Once you're done, you'll need to use a torch to pop the bubbles. Look at it one last time and pick dust and hair that might have fallen into the piece.




Lastly, you will cover the entire piece for 24 hours. When 24 hours is up, it will be safe to take the painters tape off the back.  Put the art piece in a safe place for another 48 hours.  

Personally, I love using this particular brand of resin.  Its nontoxic and I can use it inside the house. The best reason of all is it makes my artwork look very polished and have had many compliments. 

TIP: 1-Don't try and wash resin off your hands.  The best way to get most of it off is to use a dry paper towel.

       2-Spray water around the area you'll be working in, this really helps keep dust at bay.  Make sure you're windows are closed too.


Here are several pieces completed in ArtResin recently.  For more information about art resin click ArtResin

Many Thanks What a great surprise this week has been.  My sweet husband applied for a grant on my behalf with a past employer.  They have granted me a brand new Wacom Cintiq 27 QHD with pro pen and are paying for my admission fees for Adobe Max, taking place this October in Los Angeles.

I wanted to extend a big thank you to Speakeasy for making this all possible.

Its Been a While... There have been lots of changes since pursuing a career in just photography and art. I left my full time paying job two years ago and it's been scary, peaceful and exciting.  I've done lots of session photography, was picked up by a second gallery, started freelancing for a magazine and news organization in 2016 and so much more.  My creativity has blossomed into a different direction since I attended Photoshop World in Las Vegas. So I guess you could say things are pretty good.  I only wish everyone could experience following their passion.

Upcomming CVG show. Now that I have the free time to create more things, which makes me happy happy happy, I have the opportunity to enter more competitions and hopefully reach more eyes.    This year I decided to enter the Collective Visions Gallery (CVG) Juried show.  I have never entered this show before and was delighted to receive notification that one of the pieces I submitted was invited to show. (See below )  They also used the image for some advertising and included it in media coverage. I'm so excited to attend and see all the wonderful artist work this coming weekend.

From what I have seen the pieces submitted were outstanding, creative and thoughtful. 



Here is the news article regarding the show.

Life Changes Never Looking BackNever Looking Back One of the things I have always loved to do is compete in competitions.  I've been competing since I was a little girl, from state competitions in modeling to competing on a national level in horseback riding English and Western showmanship.  Today, I compete in Photography and Digital Arts.  There is something about the challenge of being the best at what you do, and if not, striving to be better than you currently are.

Over the past year, there have been several life changes.  I left a job that was soul sucking and decided to pursue something that made me happy.  I got married to my boyfriend of 10 years, and although we do not have human children, we have 4 wonderful 4 legged fur babies that are simply adored and probably taken care of better than some people.  

I have been avoiding blogging simply because I do not really know how to or what to say.  It seems blogging these days is very personal in nature and to be honest that is not something I have been that comfortable with. So, starting with this blog post, it will be my attempt to share a little more of myself than I typically would.

North Coast News Article


For August, North Beach Artists’ Guild is featuring photographer Patricia Jollimore, who most recently contributed photos of the Fourth of July fireworks and Wearable Art Fashion Show to the North Coast News. Her art will be on display at The Gallery Of Ocean Shores at 849 Point Brown Ave. NW.

Born in Camden, London England and raised in England, Scotland, Canada and the U.S., Jollimore is a full-time resident of Ocean Shores. Growing up, she was always involved in animal rescue, specifically with dogs, and still is today.

Her roots in photography started while living in Austin, Texas and bloomed when she relocated to Washington. Since moving to Ocean Shores, her primary focus has been seascapes and beach wildlife.

While living in Seattle, Patricia was among the selected photographers for “Dislocation Photography,” a small group of photographers from around the world. The group exhibited various artist venues, and Patricia was a featured photographer at the Pioneer Square Monthly Art Walks in Occidental Park.

Patricia won the Art Association of Ocean Shores’ Poster Contest of 2013. Her snowy owl photograph was AAOS’s poster of 2013. Patricia won second place for two of her photographs in the recent Art and Photography Show in Ocean Shores.

Patricia is a member of Seattle Artists, North Beach Artists’ Guild and the Association of Arts of Ocean Shores. Currently, Patricia is working on photographing a collection of 18th Century Tall Ships.

Meet Patricia and discuss her art at The Gallery on Aug. 17 from noon to 5 p.m. View some of her photographs at her website:
