Waller’s fascination with botanical themes began six years ago. Her first artistic focus, sketching and painting the human figure, continues as a strong interest.  She prefers working from life, and is a regular participant in the Tuesday night drawing class at the West Street Art Center in Madison. 
Her artist’s statement evokes Leonardo daVinci who said “Of the original phenomena, light is the most enthralling.”
“I, too, am captivated by the interplay of light across and through familiar forms of leaves, fabric, glass, flesh and bone. Light’s interaction with form is complex and fascinating. Light alters colors and shadows, creating contrast, transforming ordinary scenes into mysterious and dramatic visions. I love challenging myself to do it justice through my art.”   
Waller was born in La Grange, Ky., and attended the Louisville School of Art in Anchorage. With encouragement and guidance from long time friend (and LSA alumnus) Martin Rollins, she began painting at the Crescent Moon Studio in Louisville.
Her large-scale paintings of caladium leaves caught the attention of Craig Caviar, who led to her first solo show in 2007 at Kaviar Forge Gallery. Other showings include the Madison Art Club Gallery, the Hanover College Greiner Gallery at Hanover College, the Artisan Gallery in Madison, and The Brown Hotel Gallery in Louisville.
The public is invited to attend, meet the artist and enjoy dulcimer music by Bill Wiseman. This event is free and does not require reservations. Other activities in town that evening include free carriage rides, dining, open studios, and live music on the street.
