Kerry Q Shaffner pretty much always wanted to be an artist, except for those two weeks in fourth grade when she wanted to be chef. Luckily, she quickly discovered her bad luck with ovens and was back on track. Kerry received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ohio University in Printmaking and a minor in creative writing. Her thesis focused on collections and kitsch, with a rather specific focus on her own inexplicable penchant for lawn gnomes. Ms Shaffner returned to her hometown of Pittsburgh, PA after college and worked as a graphic artist for five years with a local grocery store chain. She is now residing in Redondo Beach, California and is continuing to explore her love for all things retro.
