The Sassy Dragonfly – Silhouette Series

We are shining a light this month on one of our new vendors Lisa Lynette Greene. Lisa was born in the Rogue Valley, raised here and Alaska and California. She has lived in the Medford/Ashland region since 1984 and has been happily married to her husband Aaron for 30 years. Her daughter Mackenna also lives in the area and works in the local wine industry.

Lisa is a watercolor artist who has been painting for over 20 years. During the COVID-19 pandemic she began a group of paintings that became her Silhouette series, which features wild animals, family pets, insects, fantasy creatures and more. Each piece that she creates has a hidden heart in the design and features plants and flowers that relate to the subject displayed; for example African plants and flowers for a giraffe or Asian plants and flowers for a koi fish.

Lisa continues to be inspired by the world around her and loves to explore new mediums with her work. She offers custom sizing on existing images and commission work. Her retail selection has expanded and includes canvas prints, posters, greeting cards, stickers and more. We are delighted to have Lisa representing her work at our store. Look for her work on one of our wall spaces under The Sassy Dragonfly!

Ashland Artisan Emporium

The Ashland Artisan Emporium is owned by Michelle Christian, wife and mother of 3 daughters. Her husband, Travis, is the business manager for Adroit Construction in Ashland, Oregon. The Emporium was the vision of Michael Rydbom, Michelle's father. In April of 2010, Michael asked his daughter if she would be willing to help transform the old DJ's Video space into a crafter's marketplace. Michelle had always admired her dad's entrepreneurial spirit and was eager to make him proud, so even though she already had two kids, a real estate career and one more daughter on the way, she said yes. On November 1, 2010, the store opened it's doors to a welcome reception from the community. They were voted Best New Business of 2010 only months later by the Ashland Sneak Preview. Within weeks of opening, the store was at capacity and had quickly become the "go-to" store for all things unique and affordable.
