    Dietlind Vander Schaaf: Containing Multitudes

    Dietlind Vander Schaaf: Containing Multitudes

    Dietlind Vander Schaaf’s life, as Walt Whitman might suggest, “contains multitudes.”  Not only is she an artist and teacher of art, she is also a writer and yoga teacher who has undergraduate and masters degrees in history (as well as a masters of fine art in writing!)  Lisa Belisle’s interview with Dietlind explores her unique practice of creating encaustic art on wood panels: a laborious process of applying layer after layer of hot wax, paint and, in her case, 23-karat gold leaf. Hear about her artistic evolution, including four years spent working through perceived failure, and ultimate emergence with a renewed faith in herself. Dietlind also speaks about her love of languages, imposter syndrome and the personal satisfaction she gets from teaching workshops. This conversation with Dietlind Vander Schaaf can be seen on the Portland Art Gallery website, on Vimeo, You Tube, or listened to via Podbean. Thank you for listening to, and following, Radio Maine. We welcome comments and suggestions for future shows from our Radio Maine community!
