About Francisco


Always the ambitious individual, Francisco built his first house at the tender age of 19 in Mexico. A few years later, he decided to pursue his passion of art making and traveling and ventured north to Eugene, Oregon in 1985. His plans to travel to Europe were waylaid for a few years while he pursued his two loves -- photography and sculpture. Graduating from the University of Oregon with a BFA in photography and an MFA in sculpture, Francisco was dedicated to pursuing his dreams.

To fund his art studies he worked as a handy man for a local property owner and learned how to patch rooftops and fix leaky faucets. Those skills would soon become useful once again when he became a homeowner himself. 

In 1993, Francisco married Kim Campbell and they moved to Portland. Renters for several years, they saved up until they were finally able to buy a sorely neglected but intriguing home. A 100-year-old cosmetic fixer that needed more than just a leaky faucet fixed. This prompted Francisco to learn about electricity, plumbing, siding, landscaping and so much more.
