Art Lessons for Children & Adults in Sammamish!

Fall 2017 – A Bittersweet Announcement:

Dear Artists & Families,

I have some bittersweet news to share.

As of August 31, 2017, I will be closing my studio space on E Beaver Lake Drive SE, in Sammamish. I absolutely LOVE sharing the creative process with children and will continue to do so through classes and enrichment lessons in local Sammamish & Issaquah schools, birthday parties, community events, volunteer opportunities and workshops whenever possible. My website, as well as Henry & Mei on Facebook and Instagram will continue to offer creative inspiration – so I hope you will continue to tune in. Henry & Mei Art Studio will still be around – only time will tell how it will evolve.

Last year, I joined Windermere Real Estate in Bellevue as a licensed real estate broker and the residential marketplace is keeping me extremely busy and happily fulfilled. I truly love helping people buy and sell real estate; it’s just an extension of something I’ve always enjoyed – connecting with people in our community, developing lasting relationships with them and helping them look toward the future.

The studio teaching schedule, Monday thru Friday 4 pm to 7 or 8 pm, takes me away from my 12-year-old daughter during the hours she needs me the most and with a son in college now, I feel the growing up years slipping away much too fast. Real Estate, though full-time and crazy busy at times, gives me the flexibility I need to be home with my family more consistently for dinner and more available during after school hours. In addition, I hope to pursue a few of my own creative goals and have time to paint and draw for myself again.

I have grown close to SO many of my students and their families over the past 5 ½ years; it has been a JOY to watch your children grow and learn and come skipping into the studio each week for class. This is what I will miss the most. I hope you will stay in touch and I hope your children will find new outlets for their creativity that fulfill them. I treasure you and I simply cannot thank you enough for your support of me and the studio since 2011.

For now, call me for a coffee date, a phone chat, stop in my office along the I-90 freeway, or if you wish – I may be persuaded to bring a creative project to your home or other location for a birthday celebration or a special workshop. Of course, if you have questions about real estate or would like my help buying a new home or selling your current one, I would be honored to assist and happy to be a resource for you. Your recommendations to your friends and family would be much appreciated as well; I promise to take wonderful care of anyone you recommend me to. I can be reached at
