Encaustic

As an encaustic painter, I paint with beeswax, wax medium and pigmented wax. I fell in love with wax because of the texture and design that could be created within that medium, often combining the wax with paint, fabric, papers or tar. Other times, I allow the wax to stand on its own and steal the show.

Fire

Born of combustibles and flame, the process of burning encaustic is exciting, spontaneous and always a surprise. See how it works in the video below.
