BB Becker developed an early fascination with ancient cultures and a love of art while attending City As School, an alternative experiential learning high school program in New York City. Becker's early exposure to art and culture created a desire to travel and for more than a decade he visited the great museums of the world and many ancient sites. Becker developed an appreciation for the efforts of humanity over the ages to communicate through words and images chiseled on hard surfaces.
The first step in design for Becker is the gathering of quotations that offer inspiration, comfort, or wisdom. Next, Becker's wife, Josephine writes the quote and Becker carries it in his pocket, pondering until he has created the design that will be its resting place. Each piece illustrates his devotion to quality workmanship, long-lasting beauty and the power of words.
BB Becker lives and works in beautiful Colorado where he continues to teach Tai Chi, ride his bike, perform in local theater, and comb thrift shops for out-of-print quote books.
