Encaustic Art

I absolutely love working with beeswax. The aroma is fabulous and the possibilities seem limitless. The medium constantly changes as I work and, when I let it, can stretch me in directions I didn’t know I was heading.

Encaustic paint is comprised of beeswax, damar resin and pigment. It is applied in a molten state and each layer must be fused using heat to the layer beneath it. My work is painted on birch plywood and encausticbord. Occasionally, I work on paper.

Here are some examples:
