After the Storm, 2020.

Encaustic, ink, oil stick, SWA..

Encaustics allow me to push the limits of my artistic expression with strong bold colors and forms.

Back to Collection

As a mixed media artist, I have always been mesmerized by texture, color and flow. When I paint, every painting is an experiment, often with surprising outcomes. Encaustics allow me to push the limits of my artistic expression with strong bold colors and forms. Encaustics for me are the superlative tool for versatile textures, dynamic colors and unpredictable movement. My encaustic journey, supported by these luminous waxes, offers me an endless creative license that, hopefully, will evoke an emotional response from the onlooker while enjoying the beauty of the piece.
