Contact Mary Theresa Dietz

I do oil stick painting mostly, but I also do encaustic painting, sculpture, printmaking, and drawing. My subjects are mainly animals.  Sometimes I like to combine different types of animals and animals with humans. My influences include folk art, pre-Columbian, ancient Egyptian, and ancient European art, German expressionism, the Fauves, animals and the natural world, and my subconscious.   My art is my obsession - my reason for living.  I use subject, form, texture, and color to create objects that are more than the materials that make them. They communicate feelings and emotions that can’t be explained in words. My work is all about aesthetics. My aim is not to make statements, social comment, or illustration, rather I strive to arrest the viewer with a visual feast.
