“We love our house because it is just big enough for the two of us. In a loving sort of way, it’s how we got the name of our art project, Crummy House,” Mason McFee says of the bungalow he shares with his girlfriend, Jessica Clark. “Instead of getting bummed about the non-insulated, allergies on the inside, campingin-a-house sort of feel, we decided to make the best of it and turn it into our creation station. We hang on the porch when the weather and mosquitos allow us to do so.”

Mason McFee + Jess Rose Clark Why They Love It: Big trees, friendly people and things to explore. How They Met: “My friend told me about Mason—‘he’s really tall and he makes a lot of art,’” Jessica recalls. “Shortly after, we ended up meeting and talking at a local watering hole. I didn’t realize he was the aforementioned artist until two weeks later when he joined me on a trip to New York to see old friends.”

Date Night: “Lucy’s for beer and bites or Home Slice seats at the bar. Tacos from El Tacorrido or Habanero just about every other day. It’s addictive!” Mason (hellomaseman.com) and Jessica (artplusmath.com) work from their home studio on graphic design and illustration projects for a variety of clients. They collaborate on Crummy House (crummyhouse.com), an art and publishing project they started three years ago.
