Photo Collage with Encaustic
This is a new body of mixed-media paintings created "from the bee's perspective" using photographs taken of pollinator-friendly plants at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chanhassen, Minnesota. I was awarded an Artist's Initiative Grant in 2018 and 2021 funded by the Minnesota State Arts Board. to create new paintings. These images are photographs printed on tissue paper combined with encaustic (beeswax paint) to raise awareness about the environmental effects on the pollinator population in Minnesota.
