Sallie Otenasek is an American artist who found her connection with wood to be the launching point of a second life career.  She paints not only on traditional pressed panels but on raw, cracked, peeling, ready-for-the-firepit wood.  “With the wood, I live in a world of imperfections and unwritten rules where I am able to transform the ordinary into treasure.  For a girl who placed unattainable perfection standards on herself most of her life, this new world brings me comfort, acceptance, and the power to let go.”
