Travis Skinner is a metal and wood artist with a keen interest in architecturally related sculpture.

A lifelong student of art, history, and philosophy, his artwork invokes all three subjects to connect with a folkloric knowledge of previous generations.

Using only a few hand tools, Travis’ residency will focus on the process of taking a log and transforming it into a finished sculpture. No hardware stores, no middle men. Just his hands, axes, and a tree.

During his first workshop, Travis introduced the idea that a beautiful process will produce beautiful results. He challenged us to think about how that applies to our own creative processes within the office.
