David Wall’s connection to Grays Harbor goes back three generations to his great-grand parents, who lived, worked and raised their children in Aberdeen and Hoquiam. Though his grandparents moved off the Harbor for school and careers, his parents moved back in time for David to be born and raised in Aberdeen. After graduating from J. M. Weatherwax high school in 2003 David began furthering his education in the arts. This started at South Puget Sound Community College, where he received his Associate of Arts, and continued at Western Washington University, where he received a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Fine Arts in mixed media studio art.
After receiving these degrees David began working in multiple roles in the arts community. This has included museum/gallery work, studio assistant to a variety of arts, and developing his own unique work in encaustic collage. During this time he has served on the publics work committee for the Western Sculpture Collection, co-taught at SPSCC, and assisted in the creation of the Port of Grays Harbor Centennial Mural project.
David is currently in the second year of the Masters in Teaching program at The Evergreen State College, and is looking forward to applying his professional arts experience in the public school classroom.
