I’ve a diptych selected from the Seams of the Fog group and a collaborative work with fellow pod-mate, rachel.
Pulling it together from concept chat to reality is an interesting process. It’s a challenge to coordinate our collaboration, because we each have a different work/ travel schedule.
She’s a photographer and I’m a painter.
In the end, we decided to create a project using a found wood panel as our frame to work within, the link between our work being the water.

i’ve been doing a weaving project, using plastic bags collected from my everyday life. it’s my way to integrate environmental responsibility and creating abstraction in my art. one of the “painting” is going to be in an upcoming show at UCBerkeley on April 6th! i hope if you are in the region, you can come by for a visit!????
Message in a Bottle is a series of art and education events, inspired by the ocean and marine plastic pollution. This year’s event is held on February 23-25, 2018 at The Venue at the Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco. The entire event is free and open to the public and will feature an inspiring assortment of art and educational installations that were created by local artists and environmentalists.
By the year 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Most plastic pollution at sea starts out on land as litter on beaches, streets and sidewalks. Rain or over-watering flushes that litter through a storm drain system or directly to creeks, streams and rivers that lead to the ocean. After plastics enter the marine environment they slowly photodegrade into smaller pieces that marine life can mistake for food, sometimes with fatal results. Ocean gyres concentrate plastic pollution in five main areas of the world’s oceans and various research groups are bringing back alarming data documenting plastics impacts.

I believe this encaustics painting is done! This will be 6 of the seams of the fog series. I’ve added a little bit of color pigment by introducing some cosmetics into the wax mix. Would anyone be interested in taking it home, I wonder. encaustics painting blog sfartist womanartist womenartists bayarea upcycle mixedmediaart mixmediaencaustics artist etchedwax beeswax plasticwrap junkmail collage 24×24 blush makeup eyeshadow powder
