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 instructional 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
