Calice Fyffe creates work as a reflection of the subconscious. Starting with a small charcoal sketch of random shapes, her works transform from shapes with no beginning or end into organic shapes of warm colored oils. Fyffe draws direct inspiration from Salvador Dali and Georgia O’Keeffe, and pays homage to sensuality and motion.

In addition to painting sacred images from various religions, she portrays women, families, and scenes of everyday life and blends intricate patterns, text, vibrant colors and sometimes surreal imagery into what she calls “art for the people.” She recently finished illustrating Anna Carries Water, a children’s book set in Jamaica which will be on display at the opening reception.
