I first saw encaustic* nearly a decade ago at a client’s home. The depth and luminosity drew me in. Four years ago I took a workshop and have been hooked ever since. My studio is as much a laboratory as it is a studio and I learn something new with each piece. Spending time in my studio is like being a child in a room full of crayons and permission to draw on the walls.
*Encaustic comes from the Greek word enkaustikos meaning “to burn in”. Encaustic paint is a combination of beeswax, resin and pigment. The wax is applied like paint while in a molten state and fused to each subsequent layer.
