Artist's Statement

The fire heaven and earth odin comes down

Paintings | Ceramics | Drawings | Top

I am a Pacific Northwest artist working in oil and ceramics, among other media. My most obvious influences are Vincent Van Gogh, Edvard Munch, and Emily Carr, and more broadly, Impressionism, German Expressionism, and Fauvism.

Unwilling to limit the media in which I am willing to work, in 2006 I embarked upon and completed an enormous sculptural project in the medium of cob, a concrete-like mixture of clay, water, sand, and straw. The result is a 200 square foot cob house in the back yard of a friend in the Kenton neighborhood of Portland. I currently live in this earthen house.

(See photos of the cob house project.)

In 2007, I designed and helped tile a friend's shower / greenhouse room with reclaimed ceramic tiles.
