While growing up in Philadelphia, I spent my days with my best friends. My evenings were filled with drawing, painting, and crafting. My passion for art grew. I included woodworking in my artistic talents. When I was 36, I attended the Art Institute of Philadelphia and graduated with a Graphic Design degree. I dreamt of owning my own business one day. In 2015, I founded BerkArt designs. It is located just outside Philadelphia in Churchville, Pa. My wife Cindy and I live in a charming Victorian home circa 1858. The carriage house behind the home is my woodshop, the 3rd floor of the residence is my art studio, and the basement is my paint shop. I always welcome a challenge. My designs have become more meaningful and personal as a result. My approach to each design is an opportunity to learn something new and expand my skills in producing high-quality pieces. Reinventing my craft and pushing my abilities to the limit keeps my work fresh and original. My wife Cindy and I are huge Bruce Springsteen fans. I adopted the expression "Born in the USA" from Springsteen's iconic album "Born in the USA." Feel free to browse my handmade product collections and get a real sense of what I can do and bring to my customers. So, whether you browse, purchase, or like my work, BerkArt designs appreciates you. Thank you for stopping by! Bill Berkelback Artist at BerkArt designs
