I think I was on Sheffield (on the south side of Belmont) for the photograph as the one just prior and the one just after was of the Old Vic Theater another restored Historic building. I don't think the area she is in is a named district, but she isn't far from Lakeview (so may still be in the district), East toward the Lake. There are some interesting churches that are now condo's but it is an older neighborhood, her building is probably over 100 years old, but a lot has been replaced in the past few years by new condo's or otherwise modified.
Over in Lakeview there is the park along the lake, and I think a marina, been a while since I have been over that way as it is cold in Winter which is when I mostly visit. North Broadway over past Clark (toward the lake) has some good restaurants if you make it that way or if you like Mexican food there is a Mi-Tierra on Belmont just a couple blocks further west from Sheffield.
Oh, Wriggley Field is one stop further north from Belmont on the Red Line at Addison.
It is through the lens of struggling through severe auto-immune illness and chronic pain, the process of letting go and eventually embracing the imperfection of life as it is, that I come to explore these concepts. Being able to find the beauty in these themes creates a point of reflection of deeper value and identity and enables compassion for humanity’s brokenness and imperfection.
I love incorporating rusty, broken and discarded objects into my encaustic work, and creating a depth through texture and distress and materials such as cement. Using encaustic as my storytelling medium itself becomes a metaphor in letting go and acceptance as the wax chooses the path in which it progresses during the fusing process.
