About

My name is Iverson Jack McGlasson aka Jax. I am a an award winning studio artist located in Portland Oregon. My studio is named Basement Access Studio.  My work centers around drawing, painting, collage and mixed media design. I love the process of making art. I tend to combine divergent elements, lines and colors together in a single piece or series of pieces there-by creating questions, meaning, edginess and even discomfort for my viewers.

                   How it works

Start with an idea or an inspiration. Think about it awhile. Let it churn and stew. Next consider materials, composition, colors and values. Finally start making marks on the page. Just keep adding marks and colors and designs. Let the piece speak to you. Eventually you will need to walk away. Then come back in a day, a month, a year. Think again, adjust if necessary and then stop once more. Just stop. Be done! Let go and move on to the next piece.
