Like the mountains, valleys, and storms that scar our planet’s surface and form beautiful landscapes, a woman’s scars are uniquely hers—each has its own story, very personal and sometimes life-changing. Yet there is a universality about our scars that connects us with the earth and each other. “Scarscapes” is a series in progress that explores these relationships by combining scars with elements of the landscape and environment, in the medium of encaustic.

The series is comprised of nine different images to date. Contact the artist directly to see more.
