Butterfield Garage is home to 30 local professional artists and artisans in St. Augustine. For July we are welcoming two new Artists to the gallery. Both t. e. siewert and Per Hans Romnes will be on hand during First Friday artwalk, to meet and discuss their unique processes.
Teri Siewert works in cold wax and encaustics, creating dreamlike landscapes that verge on abstracts. Teri Settled in to exploring the properties of bees wax 8 years ago. Wax can be scraped, inscribed, collaged, molded, sculpted, textured and used with many other mediums. It continues to peak her imagination and allows her to recapture a naive sense of wonder about life. Teri’s work invites the viewer to share a moment of time to explore thoughts of nature, secrets, times and places that we dream of or wish for. The viewer can reconnect to the possibilities of love and nature and all that is life in its true essence.
