Welcome to Whispers of Autumn

Autumn Rozario Hall is an Iowa artist working within the new contemporary art movement. Her art explores themes of connection to nature, wonder in the ordinary, and transformation of self.

Having grown up surrounded by trees, fields, and prairie, I have a great love of the natural wild places. I believe that humans and nature should be beautifully entwined. Harmony, respect, and understanding are necessary for this bond.

My paintings explore the connection between nature and self. This is often expressed through folklore and faerie motifs. Faeries inhabit my paintings as representatives of the natural world. These nature spirits share the wonder and mystery I feel when walking through a twilight forest or prairie trail.

But I feel this wonder is often overlooked, lost in the tumble of a busy life and a cynical world.  I paint because I believe art can heal, and bring us closer to a greener life.


In her studio Autumn puts these beliefs into action. She uses dried flowers, leaves, insects, seed pods, and other bits of nature for reference. She also uses up-cycled papers, lace, insect wings, tissue paper, and found objects within her mixed media work to create layered paintings. She works with up-cycled panels, hand stretched canvas, wood panel, and coldpress watercolor paper.

Old Magic

This painting was inspired by the folktales surrounding ash trees and the idea of transitions. The ash tree is often a called a faerie tree because it represents transition and is considered a portal to the land of the fair folk. The idea of the tree as a point of transition inspired me to use a variety of media to create this painting. I use textural, as well as a seasonal transitions to explore this theme. Paired with images of the standing stones, and faerie lights, I hope to create a moment
