The NEST project is a collaboration of creativity from artists of Yamhill County, Oregon inspired by the word “NEST”. Learn about Jan Shield, Professor of Art at Pacific University, who envisioned this concept of NEST from his hilltop home in Chehalem Mountain at his website: Dancing Trees Sanctuary. I am contributing my creative talent to this project which will involve a several new originals utilizing the honeycomb structures found in beehives. For this art project, I will be delving into encaustics, using beeswax and oils to create my masterpieces.
