Encaustic Painting

My most recent work combines encaustic┬ápainting with a combination of venetian plaster, collage and mixed media. They vary in size from 4×4″, 5×5″, 5×7″, 8×8″. The layers under the wax are transferred images, dress patterns, mark making, carvings and textural items embedded into the wax. The encaustic technique is helping me imagine working much larger because it is fast and fun. I am loving everything about it!
