Sausalito Artist - Ingrid Butler


ARTIST STATEMENT

Ingrid Butler, Sausalito, California artist, creates , colorfully uplifting, playful, and expressive animals, insects, fish, and landscape paintings. .

Ingrid has torn, cut and shaped handmade papers, then drawn, painted and etched upon them to create magical worlds. The ingredients of her painted collages embrace the textures and forms of nature. Space is created by the overlapping of colorful layers of textured materials. A balance of atmosphere creates harmony and joy in Ingrid's engaging art.

Butler's hand painted collages show her strong attachment to the celebration of nature through her delightful use of color and texture. She creates balancing elephants, galloping horses, crowing roosters, desert camels, Chinese golden carp, dragon flies extending their transparent wings, and bumble bees that can do the impossible. Her aesthetic appeals to all ages.
