Artist BJ Dollahite at Work

Local artist BJ Dollahite has updated her works that adorn Coho’s walls.  A self-taught artist who lives on San Juan Island full time, BJ says she has been on a quest for artistic expression most of her life. Her first creative statements were in Textile and Mixed Media. After she moved to the Island she discovered her passion in Watercolor Collage.

“What I love about watercolor is that it combines spontaneity with luminous fluidity.” Its exciting to get such a variety of results from a single medium. “The process and where it takes me is always an adventure, and I am never quite sure where it will end up, that’s the fun of it.”

Sunset Trail, 36″ x 48″ Canvas: You Have to See These Works in Person to Appreciate the Intricate Colors and Details

My inspiration comes from the color and texture that I experience. My painting are made of layered watercolor rice papers, leafs, and seaweeds. I enjoy creating representational paintings as well as abstract pieces.
