BIO

Pablo V. Cazares is a visual artist + designer building art and community wherever he goes. His work has been shown in Portland Oregon at the Afru Gallery, the Parallax Art Center, and Portland State University’s MK Gallery. He was awarded an artist’s residency at the Lookout Arts Quarry in April 2022. Community organizing features largely in his practice; he created and curates The t4t Art Collective to provide transgender artists an opportunity to show work and build community, spent two years living and working outdoors in the Sonoran Desert with Friends of the Four Tanks Canyon, and helped create a community sewing makerspace in Portland, Community Stitch PDX. Beginning his career in fashion design, he has worked with Hanna Andersson, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI), innovated designs for transgender bodies with Both& Apparel, engineered self-inflating pillows with TravelWedge and won a design contest to show work in Portland Fashion Week. Pablo has been featured as a guest instructor with UniversityofFashion.com, at the Oregon City Service Learning Academy High School, and recently as a mentor-designer with Young Audiences Arts For Learning’s SH/FT project. Pablo holds an associates degree in Apparel Design, and is currently completing his B.S. in Art Practice at Portland State University.

Recently, I have been getting approached to create teaching materials and instructional videos.

I feel that the scope of my experiences and perspective makes for compelling and relevant content.

I am pleased to announce that I am available to create lessons, tutorials, and projects.


I currently create lessons for UniversityOf Fashion.com in focused in:

CAD, illustration, technical design techniques.

I've also created art concept videos for high school art classes, and technical apparel construction textbook content for The Sew Pro School of Couture.

My Patreon is an opportunity to get a peek inside my process, a virtual artist's sketchbook.


Several subscription tiers are set up, from access to exclusive content to monthly art pieces direct to your mailbox via post.


Another tier offers a monthly custom art piece, a sort of recurring commission. This is great for small projects that need content as they grow.


Subscribing offers an inside look at my process and my experimental works. You can find and subscribe here.

As a freelancer, I am always looking for new projects that inspire,

or challenges that require creative innovation.


An adventurer at heart, I’m also open to traveling for projects.


Reach out to me with your ideas!

Collaboration makes big ideas come true.
