Kelley graduated from Reed College with a B.A. in Art History. She worked in the Education Department at the Portland Art Museum and in their archives for over four years. While there she taught classes, educated docents and provided curators and staff with supplementary information regarding upcoming exhibitions, tours and publications. Raised by a family of glass artisans, Kelley has an extensive knowledge of both stained and blown glass. She has dabbled in photography and oil painting. She continues to draw and write about art and art history and expands her knowledge of the arts by enrolling in various art classes offered in the Seattle area. Most recently she was illustrating children's books and she is excited about the arts and creative reuse!
Erin Malick is an economist for the National Marine Fisheries Service where she analyzes the effects of federal regulations on fishing communities. Erin has now lived in Seattle longer than anywhere else since leaving her childhood home in Massachusetts, passing through Alaska, Washington DC, and Bolivia on the way. She first fell in love with creative reuse as a child at the Boston Children's Museum.
When not working, Erin splits her time between her high energy black lab and husband, her hot yoga addiction, and her project to try every restaurant on Aurora Avenue. Erin comes from a family of enthusiastic crafters and treasures ReCreative's ability to find new homes for the amazing donations that come through the store.
Murray earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Multimedia Design from the University of Oregon in 2005 and his Master of Library and Information Science from the University of Washington in 2011. His studies ranged from screenwriting to animation to computer programming to letterpress printing. Over the years he has worked in wineries, the book industry, graphic and web design, libraries, as a digital imaging specialist and mold maker at a fine art bronze foundry, and as a letterpress printer.
Currently Murray is the stay-at-home dad of a rambunctious 2-year-old. What spare time he has is dedicated to biking, volunteering, and art (thankfully all things that are kid friendly). He sits on the board for the nonprofit The Orchestra of Flight - an orchestra in White Center dedicated to bringing music to underserved communities - and is part of a team developing a website dedicated to helping families use bikes as their primary mode of transport.
