erwin Overes

Born and raised in the Netherlands, Erwin worked as an RN. When he decided to change his career path to give room to his more artistic side, he moved to the US to pursue his degree in art. Originally, he studied interior design, but felt more like a director than a creator. He then began crafting the furniture that he wanted to place in these planned interiors. He worked as a furniture designer/maker for 2 years, soon to discover that the restrictions of the need of functionality steered him more towards sculptural work. After receiving his Masters, focusing on wood sculpture, he feels privileged working in his own studio creating pieces with total artistic freedom.
