Welcome to No, Mine! Studios.

Hi, I’m Suzanne Skaar. I’m an artist, writer, community organizer, and mom based in Tacoma, Washington.

Projects on this page range from educational to humorous to political. My written work has been published in The London Reader’s Motherhood Issue and in the Creative Colloquy Print Anthology, Volume 6. I have presented on topics ranging from immigration (Tacoma, WA, Tripod Series April 2019) to secret societies (Portland, OR, Drunken Discourse, October 2019). I’ve been a guest panelist at Seattle’s GeekGirlCon (2018, 2019) and a panel moderator at Jet City Comic Show (Tacoma WA 2019). In 2021, I was accepted into the Tacoma Artist Initiative Program to work on my current project, an as yet untitled 2D pixel art game.

Those interested in the volunteer call for audio submissions for the as yet untitled dinosaur game can learn more here. While the deadline was July 26, 2022, I will do my best to include those who missed it. If you are already to submit and are just looking for the application, here you go! Word/ PDFIf you want to participate but don’t have access to a digital recorder, fill out the application anyway and let me know that you need assistance with this part. The audio does not have to be perfect, and we can figure out alternative arrangements.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by the No, Mine! Studios booth at the 2022 Arts at the Armory, but especially to the City staff and volunteers who ensured everything ran so smoothly!

And now for the big news, the City of Tacoma has approved funding for No, Mine! Studios to start the South Side Animation Club!

This all ages/ all-levels gathering will be once a month, free to the public, and is meant to bring more opportunities in the arts to residents in the South End, East Side, and South Tacoma. (It’s not a requirement to live in these neighborhoods: others are welcome to participate, too.)

A large portion of the funding received will be used to compile starter kits with drawing paper, pens, pencils, etc. and more for participants who need supplies. There will also be a projector and screen on hand so that participants can share works in progress.

There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes work to take care of before the first meeting in the Spring (2023): securing a venue in the South End Tacoma, getting the word out to interested artists, securing supplies/ equipment, and more. Please fill out the sign-up sheet to participate and/or volunteer. If you have further questions, please email nominestudios@gmail.com.

Thank you to the City of Tacoma Arts Commission for your support! I can’t wait to bring this project to life!
