Cat Tesla

Medium: Painting

Booth #: LN22

Artist bio: Using nature as my muse, I combine color, shape, and line resulting in a painting that has tons of layers, gestural, and free. I use acrylic, oil, inks, graphite, wax crayon, & oil pastel. I start each painting with a ritual: taking a hike or sitting outside, doing mindful meditation and then beginning. Coming to the studio centered and without expectation allows me to have a conversation with the canvas. A mark is made, in response another, and another, and the dance begins.

Artist Statement: Oil, oil stick, acrylic, graphite on canvas.
