I’m Staci Swider and I make my living painting, building mixed media sculpture, and teaching artist workshops in Aiken, South Carolina as well as around the country. I like simple compositions layered with pattern and churn them up with Eastern European influences. Here you’ll find red line drawings between layers of paint, passionate copper accents and slavic embroidery patterns. All of these elements stem from strong spiritual undercurrents that drive my imagery, textiles, and sculpture. Thanks for stopping by!
