Kaylee’s work has been featured in Studio Visit Magazine, CreativPaper, Thalia Magazine, The Jealous Curator, Candy Floss Magazine and was featured on the cover of Create! Magazine issue 8. Kaylee Dalton’s award-winning work is in private and public collections, including the Anderson Museum of Art and the Museum of Encaustic Art in Santa Fe, NM. Kaylee’s process involves making numerous watermedia paintings, paper drawings, and encaustic monotypes. All are clipped or torn and assembled as collage, creating layered abstractions with a hint of a landscape. The work is indicative of strong textural contrasts reflective of the various surfaces found in nature. Her works are a representation of growth or lack thereof. Interpreting the fascinating consistency of botanical growth and diminishment, the expressive characteristics natural forms exude and their relatable qualities. Plants much like people are always shifting; either becoming weaker or stronger. Kaylee draws inspiration from that delicate continuous state of flux.
These works celebrate the daily growth and seasonal garden change.
