Meghann and Kevin Haase

"A hodgepodge group of artful messmakers sharing with the world whatever happened to strike our fancy at the moment."

Collective Geekery is a collaborative family studio specializing in unique, handcrafted mixed media art and gifts, most made with reclaimed or upcycled materials. A veterinarian who's wanted to be an artist since age five, Meghann is the ink-smudger and paint-spiller, as well as the one who labels all the craft supplies. Kevin is the "welpenter", adding wood and metal to Collective Geekery's pieces. He also makes spectacular quesadillas. Together, they meld the colorful and messy with the strong and structural (in art as in life).

Collective Geekery was born out of a collaborative effort to fill their home with fun, geeky treasures, and when they ran out of room in the "gallery" (*cough*kitchentable), they started sharing it with others. They share their home in Berthoud with two amazing daughters and two beloved naughty dogs. They aspire one day to have a space where all the people and pets can have all the room they need to make incredible creative messes. They also hope through the process of imagining, trying, failing, and trying again they will show their daughters to value creativity, hard work, collaboration, and perseverance.
