Wanda Whaley


Art that reconnects us to the earth and to the source of our spirit. Ancient Tradition Lives On

Inspired by the styles and techniques of the ancient rock artists, Wanda Whaley is creating the lost art of primitive rock painting. Keeping with tradition, she grinds locally found rock to a powder and mixes it with fish oil, grease and water, to make a paint used up to 50,000 years ago.
