The foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains is where multidisciplinary artist Tehya Shea-Minger ("Pioneer Babe") calls home. After roaming the west – and settling in Colorado, New Mexico, and California – she has developed her craft in the spirit of the pioneers of the past, the constant searchers. In her recent work she has come home, weaving together her stories, instincts and collected memories into textural landscapes of reflection and transformation. Her personal history reflects a deep connection to the natural world, mysticism, and magic. Balancing light and dark, rough and delicate, she takes the scattered, torn, and forgotten and gently brings them together into a graceful and cohesive whole. Inherent flaws are honored as beauty.
