My work employs a traditional encaustic process that involves heating the wax mixture, or medium, to 200 degrees, applying it to a sturdy, porous surface with a brush and fusing with a heat gun or torch. I repeat this process many times forming layers with inclusions of collage elements, various pigments, batiks, transfers and other materials. The resulting work of art has an unmatched level of depth and luminosity that is unique to encaustic. With proper care, my encaustic artwork will last for many generations.
