Artist Spotlight: Darcy Wilks

Recently, I visited Darcy Wilks’ art studio in Birmingham where she creates abstract art using paint and sawdust. She was beginning to work on a brand new piece, and she took me through the process of working with these materials.

Darcy enjoys working with sawdust because she loves using materials that would otherwise be thrown away. One day, Darcy saw someone preparing to throw away a box of sawdust, so she asked if she could have it. Along with paintings, Darcy also enjoys making abstract charcoal prints.

We are excited to share some photos of Darcy’s art, as well as some behind the scenes shots of her at work in her Birmingham studio!
