Jordan Kim

Designer on Montana Bag Works

Having grown up among artists and playing in the creeks and woods around her home, Jordan has always had deep love for both art and the outdoors. She holds an advanced degree in environmental management and worked for many years as an ecologist before turning her attention full time to her art business.  Jordan makes paper collages with a twist.  People often describe her work as “painting with paper.” She uses re-purposed paper (junk mail, magazines, packaging, etc.) to create intricate collages and often incorporates hidden messages into her art.  Her mission is to inspire us to honor our connection to each other and the natural world. Jordan lives in Parkdale, Oregon near Mt. Hood, in the heart of the beautiful Columbia River Gorge.  You can learn more about Jordan and her art on her website at www.foundandrewound.com
