About Greg Shattenberg

Born to a military family, Washington State is a faded second to Maine. Formative years were in Washington State, California, Japan, and the Philippines. Studied at the University of Washington, graduating with a BFA from Cornish College. Relocated to Maine in 1981. Live and raised a family in West Paris, currently working happily in an Auburn studio. Jobs are held in support of making art when the bills accumulate.

Times were turbulent during early adulthood (1968-73). Cultural assumptions were justifiably being challenged. In search of a fresh experience I took an art class. The world fell into place. My unformed identity found something worth clutching. It is possible to study, work, have a product and be totally unaffiliated. The limits are of perception and coordination.
