Welcome to the Norwescon Virtual Marketplace! We wanted to find a way to support all the pros, performers, dealers, authors, artists, and club table groups that were expecting to be able to promote, talk about, share, and sell their work at this year’s convention. This page contains listings from some of those who you would otherwise have seen in the dealers’ room, art show, panel programming, and hallways of Norwescon 43! We encourage you to visit the websites and storefronts listed below and support those who are missing out on income from Norwescon and the other conventions and events they would have been attending.
DISCLAIMER: Norwescon is neither receiving compensation from nor charging commission for listings and links on this page. We are not responsible for the content, products, or services provided by the listed entities.
Check back from time to time, as we will be adding more listings as we receive them! This page was last updated on.
Lynne Taylor Fahnestalk: A Rivet of Robots
Where others see junk, Lynne Taylor Fahnestalk sees potential as she creates one-of-a-kind robot sculptures from upcycled metal objects. Her Bots have been described as 3-D cartoons and she likes that comparison. Each Bot is securely constructed using drilling and screws and she uses the metal pieces as she finds them; never polishing, painting or shaping. The search for useable objects is a large part of the creative process–garage sales and flea markets are her friends.
The question Lynne is asked most often about her Bots is, “Do they move?”
And her answer is, “Not when I’ve been looking.”
Lynne is a two-time recipient of the national Canadian Prix Aurora Award for Artistic Achievement. She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia with her wonderful husband and a house full of Bot parts.
Lizzy D. Hill
I create a sense of mysterious wonder and delight that draws you in and makes you want to dance and dine with the characters in my world. So come, dance with my spirits of the Earth and dine with my whimsical witches and take a walk with one of my dragons into my world of joy and magic.

RAGNAROK STUDIO, Fantasy Art by Deborah Fay Morales
Dragons and unicorns and elves, oh my! The fantastic world of magical beasts and mythical realms is so much more inviting than the “real” world we live in. I am Deborah Fay Morales and I commit what I see to paper and canvas. Pen and Ink is my favorite medium where my drawings are very detailed. I have gone from brush & ink to the Koh-i-nohr Rapidograph pens to the Pitt Artist Pens, which is currently my favorite, to interpret the Welsh dragon freed from the flag, Fenrir frozen in time with a dagger in his mouth and my vision of the bully bunny we all know as Bunny Foo Foo. Acrylics are my favorite way to create a world in color like a blue dragon with her four little ones enjoying fire bubbles, a blue unicorn under a full moon and a special green faerie found in the Northwest. I scan all of my work so I sell prints at different venues during the year and canvas prints of originals that have found a loving home. So many pictures to draw and paint and so little time!

Meredith Dillman is a fantasy and fairy artist who creates fantastical worlds and winged beings in ink and watercolor. Her fascination with fantasy began as a child. She studied art in college and spent her free time creating fantasy watercolors and comics. She is inspired by Pre-Raphaelites, Art Nouveau, Japanese woodblock prints, and loves to bring details of her favorite historical fashions into her art. Meredith has authored and illustrated Watercolor Made Easy: Fairies and Fantasy, and Fantasy Fashion Art Studio, and published her own collections of ink drawings. You can see more of her work at her website and shop meredithdillman.com or follow on instagram (https://www.instagram.com/meredithdillmanart/) or Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/meredithdillmanart/).
With each painting, I have the opportunity to create a world that can challenge the influx of information presented by the media. My process takes that everyday noise and transforms it into mindfully thought-provoking pieces. Through hours of processing media and compiling still images, digital studies are created and then transformed into realistic paintings.
Born in Hawaii to my Indian father and Cuban mother, I was spirited away from these magical lands before the age of eight to grow in the suburbs of Central Florida. Since then, I’ve had a fascination with visiting other realms. Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland and J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World have always made perfect sense to me.
