Erwin Overes was born and raised in the Netherlands, where he worked as an RN. He changed his career path to cultivate his artistic side and moved to the US to go back to school. Erwin tried his hand at interior design, but realized that he was more of a director than a creator. He began to craft furniture that he wanted to place in these planned interiors. Working as a furniture designer/maker on his own for 2 years, he discovered that the restrictions of the need of functionality steered him more towards sculptural work. After receiving his masters, focusing on wood sculpture, he has been privileged to work in his own studio creating pieces with total artistic freedom.
Lisa Stefaniak was born and raised in Chicago, IL. In 2014, she graduated from Northeastern Illinois University with a BA in Studio Arts with a concentration in Photography. She joined the Studio Oh team in April of 2015. Lisa has shown in several galleries in the city including 33 Contemporary Gallery of the Zhou B Art Center, Beverly Arts Center, South Suburban College, and showPODs Exhibition of the Chicago Arts District in Pilsen.
Lisa's work centers around self-portraiture and continually explores the duality of Self and connection to nature. She experiments with traditional and digital photographic manipulation, often intertwining the two.
