HP Bloomer attended the University of North Texas where he received his Bachelors of Fine Arts (2007) and a Master of Fine Arts (2011). While growing up his father worked as an architect and his mother was a potter and art educator. In his teens and twenties, while working on his degree, he was involved in the Texas punk scene and toured and gigged with bands. Inspired by this diy ethos his work focuses on decorated utilitarian forms which draw inspiration from interests in architecture, and abstract designs inspired by fashion and textiles to highlight the intersection between the manmade world and often overlooked indigenous plant species . His most recent work explores the flora of North Texas and his personal narrative. He has been an Artist in Residence at The Carbondale Clay Center, Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts, and Cobb Mountain Art & Ecology Project and is currently a Adjunct Professor at University of North Texas and Dallas College.
