A new feature on my blog will be Guest Artists. People, processes and art that have had an impact on me that I want to share with my readers. Here’s the first Guest Artist Post. Enjoy!
I met Stacy earlier this year during an online Lenten retreat with Christine Valters Paintner. I loved her artwork and her process.
She creates mandalas in two different ways – by hand, mostly using a combination of watercolors, acrylics, gel pens, dimensional paint and swarovski crystals, and digitally, utilizing source images such as photographs taken, existing hand-drawn artwork, or images which are made from National Geographic pages that have been treated with a cleaning product called citra solv.
Her digital explorations began when she enrolled in Eyes of the Heart: Photography as a Contemplative Practice. She wanted to find a way to incorporate the nature images she was receiving into a mandala format and began using Kaleidoscope Kreator
