Welcome Sula Willson, our new partner on campus taking over a space in the Gateway Building!
Sula Willson was born and raised in the Methow, returning to the valley with her fiance and 2-year old daughter after living in Portland, OR for 15 years. She has deep ties to the local arts community, and grew up teaching summer art camps out of the historic dairy barn on her family’s property and studying art under local legend, Sean McCabe.
Sula Willson has worked as an educator and autism specialist for over 16 years. She holds a BFA in studio art from Lewis and Clark College, and a M.Ed in Secondary Special Education & Transition Services, with a specialization in autism spectrum disorder, from George Washington University.
In 2020, Sula’s passion for accessibility, inclusion and the arts culminated in co-founding a Portland-based nonprofit called North Pole Studio which provides accessible arts programming for adults with autism and intellectual/development disabilities. The organizational has a national reach, and Sula continues to serve the organization remotely from her sunny office at TwispWorks. She is excited to be a resource to the local community in the field of accessible arts programming, and is honored to carry out this important work among the creatives at TwispWorks.
So excited to have you on campus Sula!
