Known for her meticulous watercolor paintings of botanicals, Miriam Sagasti is now pushing these richly colored images into another mode, focusing on the strong abstract forms of her natural subjects. Clear composition, together with a minimalism not seen so much in her previous work, these new pieces underscore her substantial artistic skills.
Her love of nature and gardening is reflected in watercolor, color pencils, scratchboard and acrylics in each of her botanical pieces. The subject many times inspires the technique and the medium she will use on each piece.
She also continues to work with enamels on metal, experimenting with new techniques and interesting compositions.
