Jaap Romijn - Designer, Maker and Creative Force

Tags: 

Port Townsend is blessed with a wonderful array of craftspeople. In this occasional series we'll highlight them. Plus we can be bribed - Undertown Coffees are a great currency.

Jaap Romijn emigrated to the US from Holland many moons ago and put himself through college working as a gardener. He's also worked as a street entertainer. Art and sculpture have been his first loves and that creativity shines through to his furniture.
