Exhibit continues to March 3
Nature is my biggest inspiration. God gave us a beautiful garden and we have to open our eyes to fully see the wonder of it all. Since I was a young girl I liked to dry flowers and leaves between pages of old books. A few years ago I started to work in mixed media and decided to incorporate them in my paintings or prints. Last year I brought them out to light. They are so fragile in their beauty, some transparent with all their veins exposed, their core beauty maintained. Giving them a new life gives me much joy. The works are in acrylic, water colors, encaustic (acrylic / bee wax) prints, mixed media and photography.
