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 husband/wife collaborative team specializing in unique three-dimensional mixed media artworks, many made with reclaimed or upcycled materials. A veterinarian who's wanted to be an artist since age five, Meghann is in charge of spilling the paint, giving Kevin metalworking requests that defy the laws of physics, and labeling the art supplies. Kevin (occupational safety specialist by day) is the "welpenter", bringing a sense of movement and whimsy to each piece with his wood and metalcraft.  He also makes fantastic quesadillas. 

Together, Meghann and Kevin meld the colorful and messy with the strong and structural, in art as in life. Their art is borne out of asking the question “what if we...?”, endeavoring to bring an innovative approach to the composition of each piece. The unconventional structural elements complement the colorful pieces, helping them to “escape the frame” and become something unique and fascinating.

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 teach their daughters to value creativity, hard work, collaboration, and perseverance.
