Studio Solstone

Watercolors Made Fresh Daily

Meet Sarah Yaeger — watercolor artist & painter of the daily enchantment that is Pike Place Market.  Her creative force can be seen in the annual Pike Place Market calendar.  In 1971 she married abstract artist Michael Yaeger on the Capitoline Hill, in Rome. They traveled the French countryside that had so inspired her grandfather, C. Harry Allis (American, 1870–1938), a noted painter in the impressionist style. After moving to Spain, Sarah & Michael opened "Studio Solstone" in a 17th-century house in Altea, on the Costa Blanca. In 1975, for her series documenting Spanish Villages in watercolor, a top Spanish art critic dubbed her and her husband "Los cognoscenti de Espana antigua" (the experts of Classic Spain).  The Yaegers left Europe in 1979 for Seattle & started their studio on Bainbridge Island. Michael Yaeger, the “honorary mayor” of Pike Place Market passed away in 2016, but their tradition producing "WATERCOLORS FRESH DAILY" ® continues.  Sarah can be found at Pike Place market regularly, Studio Solstone Ltd. is in the Atrium of Seattle's Pike Place Market (behind DeLaurentis, and to the left of Pike Place Fish).
