Anne Jennings Paris is a writer and visual artist who has lived in Oregon since 2003. These encaustic paintings depict intimate views of threatened, one-of-a-kind habitats in the Florida Everglades. They were made during and immediately following a month-long residency at the Everglades National Park. The sculptural “paintings” are made by layering carved plaster onto wooden board, applying watercolor, ink, and oil pastel to the plaster, then adding and carving layers of encaustic wax on top of the main image.
Travel to the Everglades residency was made possible by a grant from the Clackamas County Cultural Coalition.
