Welcome to our newest member!

Southern Oregon Artists Resource sends out a welcome to our newest member, Steph Waaser of Steady Hand Editorial Services LLC to the Artist Services / Literary Arts directories! Our own experience with artists tells us that many are not comfortable writing about themselves. As a result, these artists need help with necessary writing for show submissions and other important tasks, especially where self-promotion is involved.

I intend to resume teaching classes and … revive my women’s retreats. When things are more stable, I hope you’ll travel down to join me. The Sale

I’ll be hosting a sale of ALL my remaining fine art work, handcrafted books, prints at half price as well as art supplies and studio furnishings to purchase. A great opportunity to take home my artwork or add to your studio at a good price. And … I’d love to say “g’bye” if you can drop by.
