Kaylee Dalton is an award-winning, mixed media artist living in northern Indiana. Her work focuses on the fascinating consistency of new plant growth and the expressive characteristics natural forms exude. Abstracting the intricacies of leaves, blooms, and the unseen world beneath the soil of roots and earthly formations. Beginning with an encaustic monotype she collages parts of hand-painted papers, ink drawings, and occasional textiles, creating a whimsical interpretation of lush landscapes. She strives for strong textural differences reflective of the various surfaces found in nature.
