Hi, I'm LYN BELISLE (say "buh-LYLE"), artist, teacher, author, and perpetual work-in-progress. My hometown is beautiful multi-cultural San Antonio, Texas, where I practice art, design amazing eBooks, run a popular Etsy shop called Earthshards, and teach workshops.
I work in four main media to explore my ideas:
In collage with encaustic and altered papers, celebrating anonymous faces and otherworldly places
In earthenware clay with found objects, creating spiritual and symbolic “neo-santo” assemblage
In fiber, with natural colors, wax, felt, tattered and dyed cheesecloth and digital photo images
In acrylic abstraction, with intuitive, non-referenced explorations of form and veiling
Lyn is an active member of the San Antonio Art League, the Fiber Artists of San Antonio, The San Antonio Potters' Guild, the Encaustic Art institute, the International Encaustic Artists, and the American Craft Council.
