Meet Artist Member Louise M. Herring!

Interview with Louise M. Herring, Member since 2010

DVAA: Introduce yourself!

My oil/mixed media paintings, inspired by nature and travel, reflect my involvement with the process of making art. I am not concerned with rendering what I see, but am challenged to express my visual reaction. I like to work in series, a format which offers both a challenge and freedom to explore.

What projects are you currently working on?

I have just finished a series inspired by prayer flags seen in Nepal and Bhutan. I am now interested in exploring the possibilities of encaustics.

What inspires your work?

Color, decorative patterns, gestures, markings and lines are springboards in my art making process.
