A little history. In 2003 Rin Carroll Jackson formed the, women-owned, RCJ Art Endeavors, LLC. Early in 2004, she moved from her home studio into the commercial space at 3561 SE Division St. Her initial approach included the wide arching STUDIO / DESIGN OFFICE / GALLERY combination. After building her business, founding the SE Area ARTWalk, completing the 720 sq ft “Creating Community” mural along-side 40 community members of all ages, and having served on the Board of the D/CBA Rin feels very rooted in her neighborhood.
Embarking on an “endeavor of passion & energy” she brings her focus to her work as an artist, compassion as a partner (of Joe Jackson, guitarist & co-creator of Sleeping Bee Batiks) and commitment to being a Mother of 2 amazing young men.
Her current angle is toward becoming more enveloped in her artwork, developing the online commerce angle of her business to move it forward, being available to her sons learning experience and striking a balance of work and play.
She is excited to be working out of a new studio space in SE Portland, OR. The year of 2013 was a buzzzzy and productive time as she and her partner Joe transformed the new space with love, sweat and joy! In 2014 the new Sleeping Bee STUDIO is the main hub of operations as she officially shifts her self full circle, back to the home-based realm. The couples unique, team-approach shows in their beautiful long lasting creations! Their work can be seen online at Yelp , Square or by becoming a fan of Sleeping Bee Studio on facebook.
