Meet the Artist
November Artist: Dipa Patel
Meet the Artist Reception: Sunday, November 12
Dipa Patel has been captivated by nature since she was a young child watching documentaries and exploring bugs in her backyard. Today, she enjoys using art as a lens to view nature in a new way, transforming her subjects with different angles and perspectives.
Using acrylic and oil paints to manipulate light and texture, Dipa’s collection Flora and Fauna is an “appreciation of nature and its uplifting vibrance.” She also uses pastels, colored pencil, graphite, and charcoal to create her art. Her collection will be on display through the end of the November.
When she is not painting, Dipa spends her time working with and educating the public about wildlife as Director of Education at Fox Valley Wildlife Center in Elburn, IL.
Stop by the library for a meet-and-greet honoring Dipa Patel Sunday, November 12 from 2-3:30 pm.
