Iris Christensen

am a multi-media artist who struggles to stay pinned down to one medium. I find that each medium is a treasure trove of wisdom, experimentation, and fun. I spent much of my energy painting in 2021. I was inspired by Helen Frankenthaler’s and the natural world. While I still love painting, I am moving towards more 3-dimensional mediums like ceramics and metalsmithing. I try and approach art and life the same way, with an open mind, a desire to have fun, and as an outlet for my creativity.
