“I, (Bethany Shorb) was born in Boston, raised an hour from New York City
and now call Detroit, Michigan home. I’m proud of and love my adopted city
of 16 years. I’m happy to see young artists and entrepreneurs making it a
viable home-base for a new wave of independent, sustainable manufacturing
and I’m proud to be able to give a leg up to some young artists via time
in my studio.
I received a BFA from Boston University and my MFA from Cranbrook Academy
of Art – although both concentrations were in sculpture, somehow making
“Ties That Don’t Suck” has taken over my life! In my not-so-spare time, I
still explore studio art work, fashion, graphic design, photography,
multimedia and music. I have a minor (ok, major) obsession with cats.”
