SAQA Oregon Member Profile Project

Please introduce yourself to your fellow SAQA Oregon members.  We are almost 200 strong, and we have a wonderful wealth of talent and diversity here.  Please answer the following eight questions, and "illustrate" your profile with up to four photos and a headshot, no more than 2 MG each in file size.  Make a note in your answers where the photos are to be inserted, wherever you think they fit, depending upon what you choose to show.  Perhaps a picture of your studio?  Perhaps your four latest works?  It is up to you, but please include a headshot.

Send your text and photos to Bonnie Bucknam at bonniebucknam@gmail.com.  Bonnie will post your profile here on our blog.

VERY IMPORTANT:  Please send your profile information IN THE BODY OF AN EMAIL.  Cut and paste the questions and fill in your answers after each question, inserting notes where you wish photos to appear.  Send your photos as attachments to the email. Please do not send a separate word document or similar file with the answers to your questions.  Your writing should be in the body of your email.  Finally, be sure to tell us your name, where you live, and about how long you've been a SAQA member.  Also include links to your website and/or blog.

If you have any questions, contact Georgia French or Bonnie Bucknam.
