TILKE ELKINS

Tilke Elkins has been researching and painting with botanical and mineral pigments since 2008, with particular focus on the magic that happens when plant and stone pigments are combined. Co-ordinator of Wild Pigment Project, Elkins consults fellow artists about integrating wild pigments in to their familiar synthetic palettes, and lives and works near the banks of the Willamette River in Springfield, Oregon.
