Biographical Information

Dovetail Practice is the collaboration of Josh + Margaret Park Smith. Since 2005, their work has been shown and sold nationally and internationally in places such as the Orange County Museum of Art, Urban Outfitters, and most recently the New Museum of Contemporary Art in NYC. Currently, Dovetail Practice is represented by the American Design Club based out of Brooklyn, NY.
