About Lelia Stokes Weinstein

Lelia Stokes Weinstein, Artist

Artist Statement

Color, texture and the themes of nature and hope have been the sources of my inspiration. I was taught to believe that there was that of good in everyone yet as a child I saw that many people did not see the joy in the world around them.  Art can bring hope to a world that needs to believe in a future.

Bees wax, pigment, paper, wood and found objects bring me joy when working on an idea in my visual art as they smell and feel good.

The process of creating has been a way for me to work through loss, change and on to hope and joy.
