About

"High art and low culture need each other to renew their vitality-- without each to enhance the other, both would full flat." Donald Kuspit, American Ceramics, Jan/Feb 1999 Artists Statement: I have an immigrant's fascination with America. After my family emigrated to Seattle from Holland when I was 14, I began driving throughout the West, camera in hand, documenting an unfamiliar yet vibrant culture made up of billboards, vernacular architecture, and decorated yards. Over time, I became increasingly fascinated with popular culture: larger-than-life advertising figures, neon signs, postcards, and travel souvenirs. Ultimately (after art and architecture studies at the University of Washington and graduate school at Mills College), these experiences became sources for my sculpture.
