Max Loren Shepard

Profile

I am an Artist and a Craftsman. I specialize in concept design and puppet fabrication. Though I am a painter, sculptor, and builder, my greatest strength is my clarity of vision combined with a seasoned versatility.

I currently live and work in Los Angeles.

Education

Bachelor of Fine Arts, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) - May 2011. Merit Scholarship recipient, Emphasis of study in Painting, Sculpture, and Animation

Skills

My skills fall into two sets; the conceptual, and the practical, both of which I value highly and consider interrelated. I draw, design, and paint digitally and traditionally. I can sculpt, as well fabricate with foam, and silicone, and a variety of other media. I am a proficient mold-maker, wood-worker, and stop motion armature-builder. I am a well rounded finishing fabricator. I like to problem solve, I work well on a team, as well as leading one. I am also a very fast learner.
