I'm Liam and I make hand painted signs and murals using traditional techniques. Painting everything by hand celebrates craft and tradition and adds a human touch that makes the work more personal and engaging.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and graduated from a two year certificate program in Graphic Design/Visual Communication at the Pacific Northwest College of Art. Beyond the educational component being an artist has led to some amazing opportunities throughout my life, including a summer spent living in a tree house while designing and making illustrations for an interpretive recycling center, creating stage backdrops and other paintings for a summer music festival which included hanging hand painted trampolines from trees. I was also able to travel to Haiti and teach a summer enrichment art class to some vibrant and wonderful Haitian children.
I live on the western fringe of Portland, Oregon in the community of Forest Grove. I feel incredibly grateful to be living here surrounded by inspiring people and the great northwest landscape.
