Encaustic and Oil
My expressive paintings are nature abstracted, glimpsed, and fragmented - more about the unseen than the seen. They are heavily textured and layered, often showing evidence of my additive and subtractive process that explores the fragility and resilience of our environment. Obsessed by pigments, I thrive on alternating between oils, my primary medium, encaustics, and watercolors. I continually seek ways to weave conservation and sustainability into my studio practice and materials.
Leecia Price is primarily a self-educated artist and has been painting full-time since 2005, she holds a BS in ecology from the Univ. of FL. She first worked in information technology and environmental conservation; while working as a naturalist, graphic design projects lead her towards illustration and painting. Her lifelong affinity for nature, water, and the sea, are the reoccurring themes of her work.
She continues her art training with accomplished artists and her work is held in private collections across the country. Originally from the southeast, mid-coast Maine has been her year round home since 2013. LeeciaPrice.com, 207-228-4422 or LeeciaP@gmail.com.
