About the Artist
Currently Wilkins work has two interrelated areas of focus: the first, landscape paintings done with pastel and water, and second, abstract collages of magazine paper.
Much of Wilkins landscape work reveals the ''grand crescendo'' of day, those few fleeting moments on the cusp between day and night when the light changes and the sacred infuses the ordinary.
The collage belong to an ongoing series of works called ''Illuminations'', borrowing from the medieval concept of illuminated manuscripts because of their spiritual quality and glowing inner light.
A graduate of Williams College with additional studies at the Maine College of Art, Wilkins has shown widely throughout the Northeast over the last dozen years. Her work is part of many private and corporate collections including Southern Maine Technical College; Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Maine; Jensen, Baird, Gardner and Henry; Bernstein, Shur, Nelson and Sawyer; and Leblanc and Young, among others. Wilkins work is available through Redfield''s Artisan Gallery, Northeast Harbor, ME.
Phyllis Wolf Wilkins is an experienced teacher of studio arts including eight years teaching drawing, watercolor, pastels and collage through Portland Adult Education. She is currently Co-Director of Kaleidoscope Arts &&&& Crafts School in Portland.
