A New Exhibit by Lisa Dawn White

Frederick Living presents a handmade and one of a kind exhibit of Botanically Themed Mixed Media Art. Having always been inspired by nature and its expressions in the landscape, Lisa Dawn White collages handmade and painted papers with botanical specimens that she collects, presses, preserves and enhances using a unique ten step process.  Works are created in multiple, successive layers and finished by hand embellishing to imbue a sense of movement and spirit. Botanicals are lightly enhanced to maximize color preservation.  Thus, with the addition of color and texture provided by vibrant pigments and papers, Lisa’s collages offer a contemporary interpretation on pressed flower art and craft.

Always searching for pattern and repetition in nature, Lisa is selective about the botanicals that she uses in her works; careful attention to detail and composition give her work an element of distinction.  A whimsical interpretation of nature is a golden thread running through each design.  Lisa hopes that her works inspire people to observe nature more closely, and reflect upon their relationship with it.

The Gallery at Frederick Living is open to the public between the hours of 8 AM-5 PM. A portion of the sales from Lisa’s art will be donated to the Frederick Living Resident Benevolent Fund.
