Denise, owner of Cole Gallery on Fifth in downtown Edmonds, is a founder and co-owner of ARTspot. Denise started selling artist supplies at the Cole Gallery location (just 1/2 block away from the what is now ARTspot) in 2007. In 2012, she invited one of the cole Art Studio art instructors, Tracy Felix, to help with ordering and organizing the art supply section of Cole Gallery. One thing led to another, and Tracy and Denise decided to open a full fledged art store .... ARTspot was born.
Denise is an accomplished artist and instructor in both oil and watercolors. These days you can only catch her teaching at Cole Art Studio just once a year during the holidays! Her work, and that of her gallery artists, can be seen at http://www.colegallery.net.
