Name: Jonathan Maxwell
Born: Baltimore MD 1969
I graduated from MICA in 1991 with a BFA in General Fine Arts. A few years after graduating, I started designing and making furniture in addition to making mixed media paintings. The furniture work grew and demanded most of my time making new designs and completing commissions. I have been able to make a living designing and building furniture, but I have always reserved a section of my shop for a painting studio. This is where I feel the most creative and I love taking the skills I have developed from making furniture and applying them in a more expressive way in my assemblage/ mixed media paintings. Currently, I live and work in Baltimore with my wife and teenage son.
