PDA 2013 is the first of an annual Contemporary Art & Design Auction that will provide a platform for artists and designers to connect directly with creative consumers and collectors. This will be a rare opportunity for art and design enthusiasts to access works directly from exciting, new and established creatives and makers. Starting bids for items in the collection run into the high four figures, but also include pieces priced starting in the $100 range. "It's exciting that PDA has created this venue for collecting contemporary design," said Andee Hess of Osmose Design, "it gives the designers more exposure and lets the public access them easily." The auction features recent, original works spanning a wide range of disciplines such as fashion, photography, painting, sculpture and applied arts and crafts.

Pre-bidding will open online on Sunday, October 6th. Join us for the live auction on Thursday, October 10th at The Good Mod at 6:30PM. Preview the pieces on our online catalog at http://bit.ly/14DVdrg.

Portland, OR, United States of America

I turned to photography at a young age as a way to manipulate the world in front of me into endless possibilities. It remained a hobby for several years until I decided to run away from the snow in Iowa and towards the rain in Portland, OR. While I was inspired by film makers and my surroundings, I had a tendency to pick apart single frames and freeze them. My memory wasn't a movie playing back in my head, it was a series of still images that created a narrative. This translates into my work through the use of lighting and props that build a scene and create a story. When I am not taking pictures, I spend my time roller skating, playing with my puppy Charlie Von Shitbird (he is very sophisticated), spending time with my snake Vans, embarking on capers with my girlfriends, messing around with special fx makeup, and exploring the great Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. The best thing about my job is getting to meet a variety of people. No to shoots are the same and I thrive on getting to know my clients and collaborating with them to create truly unique and bold images that fit their needs. Whether it be wedding photography, family portraits, small business needs, or you simply want a kick ass original portrait. If you are looking for a creative experience that will not only boost your confidence but create a lasting memory then lets make it happen!
