Audrey Robidoux (she/her/hers) is currently a Masters of Arts in Teaching candidate at Maine College of Art. She graduated from MECA in 2019 with a BFA in Painting and a minor in Art History. Her artistic practice revolves around creating realistic paper flowers, as well as watercolor paintings with elements of paper sculpture, focusing primarily on nature and our connection to it. Growing up in rural Maine, she has a deep connection to the natural landscape around us, and spends most of her free time outside, doing nature walks and river floats, collecting imagery. She loves to be near the ocean and in the forest, finding it revitalizing for her wellbeing and creative practice. Her process is deeply meditative and intimate, focusing on the small details of a memory in it’s re-creation, in order to create an object that symbolizes an experience.
