My eyes are enthralled daily as I explore Washington County. It is the visual beauty, the energetic buzz, and atmospheric landscape that excites and nurtures me.
Born October 17, 1952 in Seattle,WA.
Anastasia Nute has lived in Washington County for 34 years. She can often be found covered in paint as she tries to capture some of that essence.
I created and produced hand painted silk wearables and surface designed handwoven textiles for a very long time, selling my work at shows and galleries nationwide. My focus now is on two dimensional works (paint/drawing, encaustic, and printmaking). There is a definite language cross-over between these different mediums with evidence of each influencing the other. I am often surprised that markmaking I might’ve used in a textile surface design shows up in an encaustic piece subconsciously -I do not see it until the piece is done and I step away to observe with a moment of ‘A-HA’.
