Born 1949, Sturgis, Kentucky; died 2020, California
Practiced at Creative Growth from 2003 to 2020

In his early years in the Creative Growth Studio, John Hiltunen focused primarily on rug making, wood work, and ceramics. Hiltunen’s iconic collage work became a consistent artistic pursuit after participating in Paul Butler’s “Collage Party” in 2007. His clever juxtapositions, which combine animal and human subjects derived from fashion and natural history magazines, are provocative in their humor and yet earnest in intention. Hiltunen practiced in the Creative Growth Studio until his death in 2020.
