Matthew Osgood - Sales Assistant/ Artist

Matt is one of Truckee’s Thriving Artists.

“The creative process for me is as much about seeing – complexities of color, variations in texture, depth of field – as it is about experiencing – joy, peace, contentment, reflection, determination, hope, love, possibilities.” Matthew Osgood        

Matt has learned the skills of metal and wood fabrication, painting, and drawing to express these experiences and my ideals in the best possible medium.  Matt believe’s that fine craftsmanship is important.  So, too, is retaining the quality of handmade art created through deliberate and carefully conceived actions. Each piece I create takes me on a personal journey of learning and discovery.  When Matt works with clients on commissioned works, he invites them to share in the passion of this journey.  I draw my inspiration from their inspiration – from the feelings, moods,colors, images, ideas, and emotions that they want to emerge from the art I create.
