Yes, I AM open for commissions! Note me with your ideas and requests! Specializing in making vague ideas turn into very real art :)

No, I do not hunt these animals myself. Most of what I work with is recycled or reclaimed in some manner; as I have done since 1998, I ritually purify everything I make as part of my spiritual practice, and I donate part of the proceeds to nonprofit groups that benefit wildlife and their habitats.

I'm an artist, nonfic author, and wannabe polymath living in Portland, OR. I'm a pagan and amateur naturalist, geeky, and outdoorsy. I make stuff out of animal remains, beads, and other such things as part of my spiritual practice (and FWIW, I am 100% European mutt, so none of my work can be considered Native American). I'm also entirely self-taught; I took a few art classes in high school and college, but they were really basic and dealt more with traditional media like painting and drawing.

I sell most of what I make; if you're interested in what's currently available, please wander over to www.thegreenwolf.com (you can also find my books on pagan and nature spirituality topics there, too!)

StillDeath

Hey folks, I’m starting a new endeavor here in Portland!

Still Death is a monthly education and art session in Portland, OR featuring a variety of real animal skulls! We start each 90 minute session with an educational presentation on some element of natural history, followed by ample time for participants to draw, paint, sculpt or otherwise create art using the skulls as references. Each month’s selection is unique, and focuses on comparative anatomy as an illustration of how different species have adapted to the pressures of surviving and thriving in the world we all share. Please note this is not an art class; like drop-in life drawing sessions, this is open to artists of all skill levels.

When: Generally the third Thursday of the month, 6pm – 7:30pm –there may be exceptions, please see our schedule here

Where: Catalyst, 5224 SE Foster Ave., Portland, OR 97206

Attendance is limited to participants 18 years and older due to our venue and the instruction level of the material. No reservations required, but we ask for a $10/person fee to help us pay for the space and to add to the selection of skulls over time. You are welcome to bring your own art supplies; we will provide some basic copy paper and colored pencils for those who don’t have any to borrow. No photography, please!

More info at the official Still Death website.
