Welcome to our Artfire Shop. We are a family business, living in Portland, Oregon. I'm Dottie, and I paint. My daughter and son-in-law, Lara and Mark, create laser-cut jewelry that they design and cut themselves. My husband, Randy, creates earring and necklace racks, also laser-cut. We all work together every day and love what we do.
Dottie: I am a painter, using both acrylics and oils. Regarding my painting style, I would call it a heightened realistic style. My subjects range from dogs, cats, and other animals to landscapes. My website is http://www.dottiedracos.com.
Lara and Mark: We hand-design and laser cut our own original and fun jewelry, mostly geeky, sci-fi, game, on-the-edge stuff.
Randy: I design and make earring and necklace racks, which I also laser-cut on our two in-home laser cutters.
We all love our careers and love working together -- most of the time! Elena, the youngest family member, keeps us all from taking our work - and life - too seriously! More »
