Raised on a secret volcano island by cheetahs, Carli is adept at communicating with wildlife. This allows her to capture impressive images of animals in any kind of scenario you or your client can think of. She took her first darkroom class in a lowly closet in her high school, and she and her best friend spent their freshman year printing overdramatic photos of each other in graveyards. Carli moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2001 where to pay for her education she took on a series of odd jobs that included work as a tattoo shop clerk, a bouncer, a photographer for the house of representatives, and eventually animal care and photography at The Oregon Zoo. In 2011 her series Shake became a worldwide success, garnering her millions of website hits and putting her firmly on the map as a top animal photographer. She currently lives in Portland OR with her husband Tim and her pets Norbert and Yushi as well as a rotating cast of foster dogs. Website.

James Gobel creates paintings made of felt, yarn and other fabrics that refer to a range of artistic movements–Renaissance and Baroque portraiture; German Neue Sachlichkeit painting; Japonism, Pop Art and most recently abstraction. Whether depicting large men or abstracting nautical flags, Gobel uses textiles to create complicated compositions which are as tight as old master paintings or as loose as drawings from his sketch book. Born in 1972 in Portland, Oregon, James Gobel received his BFA at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (1996) and his MFA at the University of California, Santa Barbara (1999).
