OMR is a place for immersion and connection, a place to dive-deep into one’s creative practice, whether it’s painting, writing, music, social innovation, or something formless and emergent. Located in North Bend, 40 minutes from Seattle, it is a place where creative and diverse people with a common ethos come together, for the sparks and co-creation that we all know and long for.

Dietrich participated as an artist in residence in March-April of spring 2021. This retreat provided respite and space to work through creative blocks, allowing a fresh start on a new series of paintings. All works pictured are in progress.
