My name is Sue Christensen. I’ve been a clay artist since 1995 and a painter since 2011.  My ceramic art business sometimes goes by Nameless Wildness.  I live and work in my duplex  in northeast Minneapolis.   My husband and I have been here for 30 years already!  We work in a shared office/painting studio in our attic.  I have a clay studio in the basement, a slipcasting studio in a garage across the street, but all I want to do is paint!   It might be that I like my coworker.   He also helps me run my 12-day-a-year art shop, Sideshow Gallery at Minnesota State Fair.  It’s in West End Market, next to Foci Glass and their awesome glass blowing demonstrations.

Art-A-Whirl went splendidly for me.  I am so grateful to my friends and community for being so incredibly supportive.    I am so happy that NEMAA and the current conditions dragged me kicking and screaming into e-commerce!

Now I don’t have to convince the unemployment office that art is a job!  I have a new job!  I paint burning furniture, Fauvist churches, grafitti trains or whatever people fancy, and I sell them here.  I’ll be adding new paintings as fast as I can make them.  I am happy to do custom work.

Art buyers may meet me by appointment at my curb or on my porch to pick up purchased art, make sure it’s perfect, and hear its story.  I will soon be set up to ship by USPS, and, through summer, I will deliver in the Twin Cities; for free in Northeast Minneapolis.

Please text or email me if you have any questions or if you want more information about a particular piece of art.  Thank you for visiting my marketplace.

My Church Homes Series

I had leftover magenta, orange and green paint this winter and an hour left in my work day.  Recently we had visited our friends’ new home, a deconsecrated Presbyterian church.  I painted a wild-colored little picture of it and I loved it so much that I decided to paint every church I have ever called home, from childhood, through Pentecostalism into adulthood and… deconsecration.  Or deconstruction, as some would say.  I made First Baptist big because it’s such a glorious building and I wanted to be able to paint in every stone block.  Later I learned (from the owners of the ex-church, who are painters) that this style is called Fauvist, from the French word Fauve, meaning wild beast.  Perfect.

Seed Series

A friend gave me seeds that grew bright red-orange flowers and huge, delicious purple and grey variegated beans.  One of the plants produced peach flowers and cream and brown beans.  Each year I pick out the best beans to save as seed and I make chili with the rest.  Last fall they were so beautiful that I had to paint them, amplifying the colors ever so slightly.
