Beacon Arts Guild

You are invited! 

Beacon Arts is putting together a guild, a directory of local artists, musicians and performers, that will be public on our website. We want our community to know who you are, what do you do and what kind of services you offer. The end goal is to raise awareness and help promote you in our community. Being listed in the directory is free, if you are interested in joining please fill out the online guild application part of the form, we will review your application and contact you before posting any information online. Joining the Guild is free but we ask that you commit to 12 hours of volunteering annually to support the Guild.


A panel of Beacon Arts volunteers will review your application on the following criteria:

  • Artistic merit

  • Professionalism

  • Quality of services



The first half of the form is a survey is to guide Beacon Arts on what kind of services you need to grow and prosper, even if you are not interested in being listed on the website we would appreciate your feedback. With the current pandemic and economic crisis, knowing what you need is even more vital. Let us know so we can grow and expand with you.

Purple Heartist - Heather Sparkles

Heather Sparkles is a visionary artist with a background in realism and a focus on the spiritual world. Her artwork has a dreamlike quality to it; rich with color and emanating with powerful messages of hope and healing. She works primarily with acrylics, but paints with watercolors and oils as well. Heather finds most of her inspiration in nature and uses her intuition and emotions to guide her paintbrush. Portraits, animals, and imaginative landscapes are some of her favorite subjects to paint.

Art Director

Iskra Fine Art

I create mixed media artwork that addresses sense of place, urban disruption and the counterbalancing healing power of nature. I work in photography, painting, drawing and digital printmaking, bringing all of my media together in a unique digital hybrid. I come from a printmaking background, and although usually digitally produced, my work resembles silkscreen or lithography, with qualities that are mysterious and difficult to categorize. I also write, and share my essays on place, contemplative art and the intersection of art and politics on my blog and on Medium. I have had my own design business for many years, and am accustomed to collaboration. I welcome commissions and customization of work for interiors. My work is included in the King County Portable Works Collection, and the collections of Kaiser and Virginia Mason.
