Arte & Vino at Caffe Torino - December 2016

For the month of December we’re proud to welcome back Pauline White with “Flying through“, a collection of butterflies and terrariums. Last year’s show was a great success, and this year she has decided to showcase more amazing butterflies and some awesome terrariums that will make a great holiday gift!

Pauline White is a Northwest-based mixed-media artist who embellishes and arranges organic objects to create artworks that invite both curiosity and a sense of balance. Pauline developed an admiration for butterflies and other living gems during a childhood spent in the magical forests of the Olympic Peninsula. Today she uses foraged and found materials—including insects, paper, glass, wood, ribbon, gems, and rocks—to present a structured perspective on natural wonders suffused with spirit. See more of Pauline’s work at Shen Art.
