Jason A. Hernandez received his BFA in painting from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2001, where he studied both painting and sculpture. For the following decade he made his living through commercial handpainted sign and mural work. Seven years ago, an urge to work three dimensionally again lead him to a welding class at The School of Visual Arts. An instant love of metal and wood working and the need for a coffee table started him on a path to full-time furniture design and fabrication. He currently resides in Brooklyn and makes one-of-a-kind, custom and limited production furniture in his Redhook shop.
