Local Boy Makes Art

Jonathan Peebles is a homegrown Camas artist. Jonathan was born in 1978 and his family moved to Camas from Washougal when he was 3 years old. 

A lifelong artist, as a young man he originally aspired to be a cartoonist. At age 20 he moved to Seattle to attend art school at the University of Washington, where he studied painting, sculpture, figure drawing and printmaking while gaining his B.A. in Interdisciplinary Visual Arts in 2002. 

After college Peebles returned to his hometown and worked as the exhibit manager for the Portland Children’s Museum, and freelanced at the Oregon Coast Aquarium where he designed and built interactive environments for children. His driftwood dogs have sold around the United States and in Canada.
