Seth Patterson is an Oregon native and first cousin of Meriwether Lewis (8x removed). He ran digital marketing for Oregon-based Pendleton Woolen Mills for 6 years, before launching his own art business with a modern take on taxidermy. As an avid outdoorsman with a keen eye for design, Seth saw the opportunity to create a new class of art that will “bring the outdoors inside.”
He upholsters cow skulls, big game skulls and reproduction fish (like salmon) with Pendleton wool fabric. These statement [Pendleton skull] art pieces are often hung in mountain homes, ranches and cabins, above fireplaces and on the walls of great rooms and inspired spaces. The marketer-turned-craftsman has built an eclectic book of clients ranging from ranch owners to interior designers to staging specialists to young families with deep ties to the outdoors and, of course, Pendleton fanatics.
Seth married his high school sweetheart, Amy, after spending four years of college in West Texas. He now resides in a small rural town with their four little kids outside of Newberg, Oregon. He finds inspiration while hunting and fishing the vast public and private lands of Oregon and Texas and plans to keep pushing the edge with his art.
