Brian Anderson
Born in Minnesota in 1938. College was a bust for Brian Anderson and he ended up in New Mexico. “When I got to Santa Fe it felt like home and I stayed,” Anderson said. He ended up there for close to 50 years, including getting married, raising a family, and then getting divorced. The one constant during those years was making things by hand. Anderson earned a reputation for making high-quality hardware and artwork throughout the area. Anderson remarried in 2006 to Lausanne Allen. They both currently live and work in Vermont.
