Welcome to Walt Padgett's Art Gallery
Hi, I'm Walt Padgett. I hope you enjoy my web site and find something that appeals to you. I work in a variety of media and themes; the pieces displayed here are representative and of course not the complete inventory. My main passion is Japanese woodblock printmaking and sources of imagery that can be found in Japanese culture and history. Nonetheless I enjoy working in other media from abstract ideas to subject matter of the Pacific Northwest and travels.

My college teaching experience keeps me constantly challenged to think about expression, creativity and content so that I can facilitate my students. Inadvertently I also stay inspired and find myself wanting to do many things. If only I could make things as quickly as I think of them! I enjoy the making process and seeing the outcomes.
