About Our Store

With the opening of Colors of Sequim, the thriving art community on the Olympic Peninsula finally has their own place to buy fine art materials. This 2,000 square foot store in the heart of downtown Sequim carries some of the most sought after lines in art materials such as Daniel Smith, M. Graham and Golden Acrylics as well as high quality, but moderately priced, lines for the student or beginning artist.

Whatever your passion, be it paints, pastels, colored pencils, markers, calligraphy, origami, or polymer clay, Colors of Sequim is the place to find the materials, tools and surfaces to bring your imagination to life. We also carry books and DVDs to inspire and instruct artists of all skill levels. There is even a children's area where the youngest artists can create a masterpiece while the grownups shop! An inviting lounge offers artists a place to enjoy coffee and a cookie, gather to exchange ideas, or perhaps to meet before attending one of the many art classes, workshops or demonstrations held in our in-store classroom area, which can be rented by those interested in teaching opportunities.

Owner Eileen Cummings wants you to know that this is your store and she welcomes your suggestions about what items you would like to see in inventory, as well as what classes you would you like Colors of Sequim to host. Whether you're already in Sequim or making a little journey from Port Angeles, Port Townsend, or Forks, we are happy to be your local, community-based source for any art supplies. So stop by to shop, sign up for a class or just to meet Eileen - you are always welcome at Colors of Sequim!

Rainshadow Artists

Left to Right: Suzi Morris, Jette M. Monahan, Sandy Wolf,
Betsy Robins, and Brenda Boggs Newman
The Rainshadow Artists is a local group of watercolor artists who meet once a week to paint, commiserate, critique and support one another artistically. Each has earned her artistic license through lessons, trial and error, success and failure. Art is a lifelong learning curve that is wonderfully rewarding when everything comes together in a painting.

Jette M. Monahan
Jette (pronounced Yetta) was born in Copenhagen, Denmark. She immigrated to the U.S. to marry her sweetheart, eventually settling in Port Angeles in 1973. She has painted with Rainshadow Artists off and on for the last few years, when not traveling, gardening or making baskets.

Suzi Morris
Suzi retired from teaching in Arctic Alaska and wanted warmth and color in her new life. She came to watercolor by way of sewing, quilting, and silk painting--all disciplines that use color and shape.

Brenda Boggs Newman
Brenda graduated from Radford College in 1961 with a degree in Art Education. She taught middle school art in Bakersfield, California until her retirement in 1996. She told her students she wanted to, "...take art lessons from someone besides myself."

Betsy Robins
Betsy has been working in watercolor for many years. She is interested in and works in several forms of arts and crafts but has concentrated on watercolor in an effort to understand the medium and improve her technique.

Sandy Wolf
Sandy is a Colorado native retired to Sequim. She graduated from the Colorado Institute of Art and worked for several years as a graphic designer. Now she is seeking to become the artist she always dreamed of being.
