Altility Bellingham

Big changes have been in the works since my last entry.  For the past month I have been relocating Altility Art Studio to Bellingham, WA.  The move from Portland has long been on the horizon and alas I find myself amidst the great transition.  Bellingham is a much smaller city than Portland in the very Northwest corner of the country.  Nestled in a bay of the Puget Sound, the town is home to a fairly progressive community that gives priority to a local economy and an active lifestyle.  With the dramatic and expansive North Cascade mountain range to the East, British Columbia to the North and the San Juan islands to the West.  The decision felt good for my partner Jess and I as a new home with plenty to explore.  Having just graduated from National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Jess will be starting a medical clinic here as well.

I’ve rented an old building in the downtown between the main street and the bike path.  The space is larger, more practical and after some serious cleaning and renovation has become a much better fit.  The yard to one side of the building is home to a native nursery, Plantas Nativa which ads a wonderful botany and diversity to the space.  After a major Portland shop deconstruction, two large box trucks, generous help from friends and a lot of heavy moving, I now find myself nearly up and running in a new town, a new space, and with renewed aspirations.
