Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Jacob Wener began woodworking at a very young age. With tutelage from both his father and grandfather, he spent many a night in the basement shop perfecting his craft. His father, a machinist, introduced him to the world of metalwork, expanding his repertoire of design tools. A passion for aesthetics was cultivated by yearly summer vacations to Manhattan's Upper East Side with his mother. Formal training came in the form of a degree in Architecture from The University of Kansas.
Chicago artist Adam Siegel is nationally recognized for the breadth of his work as an abstract painter and photographer. Known for his large-scale works, Siegel presents a soulful refinement to the contemporary category. Influenced deeply by his time in Japan, the artist merges two distinct sensibilities—East and West—with compositions that showcase an elusive and elegant balance of both. His works meld the Internet's ceaseless capacity to stream constant images while echoing the authority of anonymous histories and lost treasures.

She is dedicated to artistic and transformative living, creative design, and evolving global and social awareness through the arts. She has exhibited nationally and internationally since 2000 and has created a prolific volume of work in both residential and commercial settings.
Andrew Ek is a self-taught painter living and working in Chicago. His paintings are crystallized visions that have surfaced or have been captured, usually at random, from a thought or emotion. The creative process usually begins upon viewing an image or visiting a place and he then feels compelled to develop that idea into a painting. Currently, he’s interested in boredom and mundanity.
