  • Beebe D. Slater

    The word Artist has always been magical to Beebe! She started drawing in the second grade, pictures of an iris that always looked the same with a blue flower and green stem, the beginning of a dream that got lost along the way with school, babies and a career. But the dream survived and when her babies were grown she started taking lessons. Today Beebe is a magical Artist.

  • Brian Cameron

    A native Oregonian, Brian Cameron was born in Seaside in 1952. He has lived his entire life on the north Oregon coast as did two generations before him. This long exposure to the peculiarities of the area has resulted in a bond with the culture and traditions of the North West. Rugged individualism, hard work and a sense of oneness with, and appreciation of nature are all aspects of this culture. These are qualities well suited to an artist.

  • Brian Johnstone

    In establishing Nehalem Clayworks, Brian Johnstone considers that in Manzanita, Nehalem and Wheeler communities (The “Three Villages”), and by extension, Tillamook and Clatsop counties and beyond, there is a real need and opportunity for a creative enterprise of this type. He feels that the formation of a central workspace, linking up and cooperating (rather than competing) with other established studios forms a base of support for educational and experimental work with establishments who have, or wish to begin or expand, limited scope clay programs.
