What started out as just artisan markets has grown into a vibrant community of makers, crafters, artists and more.

In 2021, we began to host markets at various locations around Skagit Valley. As of 2024, we are excited to announce that we now have a permanent 'home!'


Our new Creative Hub & Coffeehouse is located right in the heart of downtown Anacortes - offering a variety of art classes and meetups, an area to paint your own pottery, delicious beverages and pre-packaged snacks... and we have so much more in store!

Hello. I am a local artist here in Skagit County. Aileron Elise is the creative space I am cultivating. 

Being a part of the local creative markets is just beginning for me and I am so looking forward to the opportunity to grow and connect. 

An ‘aileron’ is a part of an airplane wing. The word is French in origin and means “little wing”. 

That is how I think of my art and creativity. Like little wings that float into existence and offer a little levity, some play, fresh air to breathe, space to find some light, and the chance to drift up above the noise.

Watercolor is my favorite. But I also love playing with gel pens, layers of paper, bright acrylics, and chopping up images and pages until my hands are covered in paint, ink and glue stick.
