About the Instructor:

Connie’s recent art work has been taking a closer, more intimate look at nature.  She is drawn to the quiet, meditative aspects of the natural world; fascinated by the shapes of plants, leaves, pods, branches and twigs and the play of light and shade on their surfaces.

These patterns generate visual and meditative interest. Reflections and shadows offer a chance to stop and observe complex patterns in nature. This complexity can increase the meditative state by holding one’s attention and focus longer. Her paintings investigate the different levels of reality we can observe in the natural world.
