Shop Art

Eve DellaValle

Both of Eve DellaValle's parents studied art in Paris in the 1920s. With their interest in art, art has been part of Eve's life, as long as she can remember. As a child, Eve spent countless hours drawing, painting and making things, as there were always materials available to experiment with. In Eve's twenties she made small, clay figures that she turned into plaques, which were sold to gift shop...s along the Oregon coast. When Eve had small children, this turned into work that allowed her to stay home while they were babies. When the kids reached grade school age in the early 1970s, Eve opened a gift shop in Lincoln City, Oregon, called The Beach House, which she ran for the next 22 years. Displaying merchandise satisfied Eve's creative urges. After selling the shop, Eve and her husband dabbled in antiques. When they moved to McMinnville, she took a pastel class and was instantly hooked by this interesting medium. Eve works mostly in pastels, but now also does oil pastels and recently added watercolor to her repertoire. Eve loves to be original, and just creates what comes to her, so her work is a bit quirky.

"I think artists have the cave man gene that makes them want to draw on the cave walls. I know that I feel compelled to draw and paint. Of course I don't paint on my walls, I make my cave paintings portable, so they can be moved from cave to cave. Frankly, I simply enjoy painting, and if others enjoy what I do, that makes it all the better."

I'm Going, Too Fine Art by artist Eve DellaValle - Description: This inspiration for this came from my brother who has a small white dog, who actually would climb into their suitcase whenever they were trying to pack. Dogs are fun because you can do different things with their ears, they can be drooped, or pointed ... and I really like the runner on the table here!

Put a Bird On It Fine Art by artist Eve DellaValle - Description: Just another still life, and in true Portlandia fashion, you have to Put a Bird on It. I like making up my wine glasses, my pottery, and making up my own bird species. When I used to run the gift shop in Lincoln City, I always like putting the displays on different levels, and somehow when you put different disconnected objects together, they become an "entity" together.

Were You Invited? Fine Art by artist Eve DellaValle - Description: This one went in stages, and I kept coming back to it over the course of several months, changing some colors in the background, and the changes kept occurring until it "said that it was done".
