Edit Whitsett was one of the great scene painters in Seattle, and she also did original designs. The last of hers I saw was the set/costume design for Bruce Wells' "Snow White" last year.

Room 104 & Seattle Children's Theatre present this exhibit of her work through 30 May, Tuesday-Friday 3:30-5:30pm at Seattle Children's Theatre's Charlotte Martin Theatre Upper Lobby (201 Thomas Street).

This looks really cool - It would be great if she published a book of these designs...

Ms. Whitsett died in December 2011, far too young. This is a short article from "The Stranger" at that time:

It would be great if these were made into a book in her memory.

Thank you for sharing this Helen - sad to learn she has passed away. I agree that it would be great if there was a book made in her memory. Her work is lovely.
