Blue Dogs Media
Lisa McKinney sells stickers, youth t-shirts, a Missoula Bucket List, and funky bubble mailers in the ZACC artist shop.

She artfully captures nature, animals, and wild adventures in her designs as Blue Dogs Media founder & mama-of-three wild humans. Through graphic design work spiced up by block printing techniques, Lisa brings us vibrant illustrations overflowing with whimsy!
Courtney Blazon sells stickers, prints, pins, art books, tote bags, greeting cards, and more in the ZACC Artist Shop.
Blazon draws intricate narratives that are layered with symbolism and meaning—in particular, issues surrounding women and the complexities of women’s lives throughout history. Blazon draws influence from the natural world; literature, mythology and fairytales; societal expectations and coming-of-age issues, and leans into humor, irony and symbolism to create involved stories that are woven together and are not always what they appear to be upon first glance.
Dani Turner sells stickers in the ZACC Artist Shop.
"Inspired by nature, myths, and history, I explore a combination of these themes in my artwork. Growing up on the Hi-Line in Northeastern Montana gave me a love of landscapes, creatures, and particularly their connection to stories. I enjoy portraying witch’s familiars in particular, and their relationship as accomplices and curses. Primarily working in water-based painting mediums, I occasionally screen-print, sculpt, and felt as a way of exploring my ideas. I currently live in Missoula with my sweet pooch Lulu, navigating the local trails and wondering at the small lichen on tree stumps." - Dani Turner
Erin Johnson sells adorable corgi stickers, laser etched magnets, and notepads in the ZACC Artist Shop.
"I am an illustrator, mixed media artist, and freelance graphic designer. I have always loved storytelling, whether it be small and ridiculous or epic and sacred, it has always been a way I have found connection with others and the world around me. I have a mixed background both in heritage and art. I am a person that has always had the need to know more regardless of the truth. I have struggled a lot with ascribed identity and chronic disease – the result being the desire to either find meaning or humor in situations, sometimes both. With the traumas of the recent past and present, I just want to give others a small reprieve from that world and this is how I try to do it. By being silly and unapologetically my authentic self and sharing that through my work." -Erin Johnson

Shards and Splinters
Nancy Wahlstrom sells unique glass pieces that utilized repurposed materials.
"My business name is shards, splinters because most every piece I create has a repurposed frame, scrap stained glass (some is from stained glass windows salvaged from demolition and some has been packed around for 40-50 years in boxes, crates, and drawers stored in garages, attics, basements and sheds), cast off jewels from broken, usually but not always, costume jewelry, and my heart. Some of the pieces I love so much, I have kept them, but had them printed up into placemats, tote bags, and pillows. This year (2022) two of my pieces were in our own Missoula fair, one winning a second and the other a grand prize ribbon. My 'Leaping into the Weekend' was a piece auctioned for Rhino preservation in Africa. My work is in Ohio, Oregon, California, Nevada, Alabama, England and Australia. I do commissioned work, and you can select colors and frames from my collection or bring your own. You can see much of my work on Instagram." -Nancy Wahlstrom
Adalein sells her paintings as greeting cards in the ZACC artist shop.
"I'm an 11-year old, 5th grader in Missoula. I love to paint! I started painting with a mentor in 2019. In addition to painting, I enjoy competitive sports - basketball and soccer, and playing the piano. One day while I was riding on Van Buren Street in Missoula, I saw a mural at the roundabouts and thought that is a very cool job to get paid to do. I hope they enjoyed painting it and I would like to do that some day. I had an art show at the ZACC in May 2022. I would like to have more art shows, and one day do murals, but you have to start somewhere. I could never have had this painting opportunity without my neighbor and painting mentor, Richard Opper's, help." -Adalein Stokman
