    Stunning art. I’ll be proud to have it on my wall. Lovely that it came matted also. Communication became connection. This was an amazing transaction.

About

Embracing Our Stories

Welcome to my Etsy shop! I am a mixed mixed media, cold wax and encaustic artist, storyteller and Native American singer. I've always loved well made things that have a deep meaning to them. I love aged patinas, rusty things and all things finding their way back to their essential selves.

About twelve years. I started art journaling. For me, it was one way to deal with the stress and heartache of my son going to Iraq. I found that art helped me navigate through my fear and helped make meaning in my life. Somewhere along the way, I realized that my art was all about story and healing. Healing our stories together.

In the last few years my art has grown more abstract, using visual and organic materials as symbols to express stories that we have consciously forgotten but that sing to us from places deep inside our soul. As I paint I am weaving memories, sacred song and stories, earth pigments, beeswax, and plant medicines. Through my mixed media and wax work, I feel like I am reclaiming the beauty and soul of the earth, reclaiming my connection with the Earth, with the Unknown and Unseen, and reclaiming our humanity.

I hope my art reminds you to connect with those soul full places in your life. You can learn more about my art and my work at gemmabbbenton.com
