About / Contact
Chad Crouch was born in 1973 in Portland OR. He was raised in suburban Portland by an interior designer mother and an engineer father, and educated at the University of Oregon where he received a BA in Painting in 1995. Following school he quickly learned how to support himself with this education by combining a prolific streak with hanging multiple exhibits in mixed-use spaces: cafes, furniture galleries, restaurants, salons, and the like.
During this time Crouch’s musical hobby took on a manifold life of its own (publishing, managing, composing) and by 2002 visual art had largely fallen by the wayside, supplanted by music.
The only client he could not say no to in this fallow time was local non-profit Friends of The Children, who kept his imagery and name in circulation with their various cards, invites, and identity materials featuring the minimal people Crouch became known for.
A decade later in the winter of 2012 Crouch stands at a fork in the road, and is quite curious to see what may happen. Crouch lives in Portland with his wife, son and two cats.
