a little about Stu . . .
One of the few “natives” left in PDX, super creative and a futurist, somewhat of a renaissance man being a mixed media artist, and corporate creative who loves to cook, play guitar, jump off deep snow cornices in 19 degree weather, and invent things. When he’s in the garden, where their two zany dogs, Frankie and Mika play and talk for hours about squirrels and frisbee, his wicked sense of humor and general goof-ball ways unleash.
& a little about Anca…
Romanian by descent, her path took her through Germany, Washington D.C, the Bay Area and finally, yup finally to Portland. She’s a former psychotherapist, whose creative interests are boundless : painting, drawing, collage, print-making, creating whimsical lamps and then.. she loves to sew, felt, weave, and make magical organic potions from herbs and essential oils. When she’s done with that, it comes as no surprise she’s wildly creative in the kitchen too. Oh, one last item Anca invented —the 48 hour clock — why? Well, she’s is currently pursuing her certification in Organic skin and Hair Care formulation.
