J.R. Slattum is a visual artist living in Woodburn, Oregon USA. He likes living and working there because it offers all sorts of outdoor adventures within a short drive. He frequents the Oregon Coast to reset as needed, and he states, ” I like to plant my feet in the sand, and watch my mind float away in the clouds”.

J.R. Slattum’s artistic endeavor first began in 2007  after he had a near death experience that changed the course of his life. He decided to use his experience by examining his personal views on life in depth. The incident was a moment that flipped his perspective and shifted his world upside-down.
