Jeffrey Erken


Jeffrey Erken finds that his disability—schizoaffective disorder—mirrors the work that he creates. He sees himself changing as his work evolves, and vice versa, with the process being more about personal growth than anything else. Erken received a master’s in architecture from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He lives and works in Stanwood, Washington.
