Sean's art was the first that we used on our coasters, cards and prints over 3 years ago. We are so thrilled that he teamed up with Perkiomen Valley Brewery to help make some amazing labels for their amazing beer! Keep an eye out for the opening date of their brewery later this year and check out the finished product yourself.

Attention to other breweries - big and small - PVB has helped Sean merge his love and talent of art with his love of beer...who is doing the artwork for your next brew?!?! Sean is ready for your call!Sean Thomas Biggs was born in Tulsa and moved with his family to Seattle, Denver, Boston, Philadelphia and most recently, Kansas. Sean has a severe Auditory processing learning disorder which impacts his life. The mechanics of his ears’ ability to take in sound is not the issue, but this disorder affects Sean’s ability to interpret what he is hearing and what it means.

But, Sean is far more than his challenges, including that he is an amazing artist. We were lucky! We found him through @craftersforlife1 We reached out to Mike from Crafters who virtually introduced us to Sean and his mom, Maggie. We asked Sean to do some art for our first set of beer labels and negotiated a mutually agreeable price. Sean and his mom said yes. It wasn’t hard. We found out that Sean loves beer! Guinness is a favorite. This picture of him is from Ireland.

Sean sells his art to help support himself financially. If you are interested, you can find some of his art at Craftersforlife.com. You can also contact him directly for commissioned art by contacting his mom, Maggie 908-310-1388.

One of our goals is for individuals with disabilities to highlight what they can do. And man oh man, can Sean create some spectacular art! Proost, Sean! You are incredibly talented. Thank you for creating these gems for us! Can’t wait to meet you in person some day! #perkiomenvalleybrewery #wherepatienceandpassionmeet #autismfamily #autismandbrewing #openinglate2018 #craftersforlife #talented #abilities
