A beach girl, living in the heart of the Colorado Rockies, Erin Rigney’s encaustic Shellscape Collection is an exploration of the atmospheric designs in shells and the unsung beauty that washes up upon coastlines.
“Fascinated by the variations of patterns and abstractions in nature, these paintings focus on shells and their oceanic alchemy. "Like each of us, the shells are imperfect yet stunning in their individuality.
My Shellscapes are often inspired by fragments of shells therefore I intentionally strive to design my paintings so there are multiple orientations in which they can be viewed. I desire to give collectors an opportunity to personally experience each perspective therefore expanding their own perceptions.”
“Welcome to my world.” - Erin Rigney
