Kurt Riemersma

Don’t think about making art, just get it done.

Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad,

whether they love it or hate it.

While they’re deciding, make even more art.

- Andy Warhol

Born the sixth son of a coal miner deep in the heart of Appalachia, Kurt Riemersma…No, that can’t be right. Ah, here it is. I was born on a Thursday in 1969 - the same day as a solar eclipse. I looked it up. My arrival was marked a moment of eerie darkness and mild panic. Fortunately, it got better from there.

I went on to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and now I live in Evanston, Illinois with my lovely family. That is where I get art done, then I make even more.
