Keeping Up with IAMTEEJAY

I was a stranger in a strange land. After moving to Los Angeles in 1998, I had to find a way to reach out and find my first customers. Fortunately, being a roadie to a couple of Hollywood bands and having my own band in Culver City, I was exposed to a large number of creatives. These potential clients were just then getting to understand how this “new” technology would help them market themselves more effectively. What better way was there than to offer 10-free website designs to those around me. After having a pivotal lunch with writer, music art critic, and artist representative, Craig Stephens, I was introduced to his clientele, some of whom would become my first clients. This group included Robert Reynolds, Jeremy Kidd, Richard and JoAnn Patterson.

Originally, the site for JoAnn and Richard Patterson, a.k.a. Clay and Wood, was designed in Flash and experienced a few minor changes over the years. After 16 years of having the same Flash-driven site, my client felt it was time to update it.

JoAnn is an artist who works in various mediums including porcelain, stoneware and earthenware, while her husband Richard designs and manufactures one-of-a-kind chairs, benches, and tables.  He utilizes traditional wood joinery and polishes the finished with natural oil to enhance the wood's native color.

I welcome you to discover their crafts which have appeared all over the globe, in the homes of celebrities and on the sets of many studio projects.
