About the Artists


Justin grew up on a cattle ranch in the arid outskirts of Las Cruces, New Mexico, where he learned to fix and build just about everything short of the Space Shuttle. A graduate of New Mexico State University (Geology. Go rocks!), he currently earns a real living in the field of industrial hygiene, all the while dreaming of the day when his art will pay the bills.


Pat, Justin’s partner in crime, is driven by the motto, “The only thing worse than being unemployed is having a job.” So at any given time, she is either unemployed, or very bitterly employed. Her degree from New Mexico State University represents the only grownup thing she’s ever accomplished in her life.


Both absolutely adore beating metal into submission, and turning it into art that makes people smile.
