Jaime LyerlyI am a mixed media artist trying to bridge the gap between personal narrative and art made for the public eye. My works speak of the ambiguity of our future and our connection to the natural world. As a mother, I try to make the best out of what has been given to me and my art reflects that never-ending effort. It is messy, layered, personal and uncertain – just like everyday living. Found objects, discarded materials and branches from nature blend together with beeswax and hand-knitted yarn to create art that is familiar yet hauntingly distant from its original function. I also work in more traditional figurative subjects and traditional materials such as clay, wire, plaster, plasticine and wax.
I am currently working in encaustic (molten beeswax, resin and pigment) in two dimensional and three-dimensional forms. I love to share my process with others. I am an undergraduate student at San Diego State University studying sculpture and psychology. My blog at http://jaimelyerly.blogspot.com is where I show works in progress and connect personal stories with the art that inspired it.
