30 years old.
Currently living in Portland, OR.
This week I’m calling myself an: Object based studio artist and designer. (fancy!)
I usually call myself a: Maker of Things.
I don’t do drawings, I design by making.
I design and build everything myself.
This is a one man operation. John Henry vs. The machine.
My projects vary from small scale design/build for commercial clients, to commissioned furniture, to sculpture, to product design and development – and I love collaborating!
I consider myself self taught with other people around – which means I went to school.
School: BFA Interdisciplinary Studio Art -Biola University – 2007. MFA Applied Craft and Design joint program via Pacific Northwest College of Art and the Oregon College of Art and Craft - 2013
I also spent many (formative) years as a kind of ”artist in residence” working at The Lab and The Camp in Costa Mesa, CA.
Baby on the way.
Prefer estate sales over museums, and thrift stores over galleries.
I went to stunt school the summer after I graduated High School.
If I could do it all over again I’d either be a dancer or a surfboard shaper.
