About Us

Posted in About Us with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 18, 2012 by Lax Cat Creations

We live in Portland, Oregon with our two very sociable black cats, Saki and Pixie. We are approaching  7 (mostly) wonderful years and have moved from northern Arizona, to Bend, to this beautiful city of Portland where we plan to stay and build our futures. We are passionate about creating beautiful and functional art by repurposing old materials.

In May we welcomed our first child, Ansel Jude, the inspiration for many of the projects on this blog. In particular transforming the second bedroom of our apartment into a nursery that reflects the beauty of nature, specifically the forests of the Pacific Northwest. We also recently bought our first home. It is a real fixer and will no doubt provide endless project opportunities.

Tom is a project manager/ building analyst for a green building company and also a full-time student. Tom is a Level I Ski (PSIA) and Level II Snowboard (AASI) instructor. When he has free time (what’s that again?) he loves nothing more than to be on the slopes.

Arian was a Public Health student at PSU until Ansel was born. She looks forward to returning soon! Arian is also a licensed Aesthetician and has a background in the performing arts. She loves to dance, sing and write music.

In addition to the nursery projects, some of the most quality time we have spent together has been working on various other projects for our home and cats. We hope to post all of these projects along with the steps we took in creating them.
