Meet Chase Halland

Chase Halland was born in 1983 in the coastal town of Kingston, Washington, but spent most of his early years in the Big Sky country of Montana. Relocating to Seattle in 2003, his exposer to the graffiti and skateboarding culture heavily influenced his love of the arts and design. The saturated art scene of Seattle fueled his passion to create and expand his art into new avenues. Chase now resides in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho with his wife of 18 years and their 2 children and 1 dog. His passion and dream to pursue his artistry full-time became a reality in 2014 with the opening of his business, Faraway Lovely.

At the core of Chase's creative vision are his custom art mounts, which seamlessly blend the bold aesthetic of Pendleton® fabrics with the time-honored tradition of taxidermy. This fusion results in a contemporary reinterpretation of a cherished heritage. It's a departure from conventional taxidermy, marking a progressive shift in this age-old art form.

Chase's remarkable achievements have not gone unnoticed. In 2014, his collaborative Deer Mounts with Benny Gold garnered recognition on the esteemed Hypebeast blog. And in 2019, HGTV prominently featured his iconic Moose Mount, adorning the great room of their prestigious 2019 HGTV Dream Home, nestled in the mountain town of Whitefish, Montana. Halland's work enjoys a distinct favorability among homeowners, cabin enthusiasts, and discerning interior designers alike. His creative journey has been punctuated by the excitement of tackling unique and imaginative client requests, exemplified by his exceptional work with Moose mounts, Caribou, Bison, and most recently, the ambitious projects involving a Triceratops and a Bear.

Chase Halland's relentless pursuit of artistic excellence, coupled with his unwavering commitment to pushing creative boundaries, continues to captivate and inspire connoisseurs of contemporary artistry.
