Seattle, WA


Austin’s artistic journey has taken him from painting in his parent’s basement to k-12 art teacher to community artist and educator.  Each step along the way has taught him something important about understanding relationships between people and places. Austin believes creativity is a fundamental characteristic of human beings, and understanding our authentic creativity is an important piece of living a fulfilling life.  There may be no tool as powerful as art in changing the way people feel about themselves, others, and their environment.  Austin currently lives in Seattle, WA, where he co-founded Gridless Studio, an urban oasis for promoting wellbeing through the creative practices of Art, Yoga, and Gardening.  He also joyfully teaches k-5 art classes at the Perkins School. Austin earned a BFA from the Peck School of the Arts - UW Milwaukee, Art Ed teaching certificate from UW Madison, and a MA in Creativity Studies from the Union Institute and University.   Austin’s most recent body of work focuses on exploring themes of love.
