Encaustic painting is unpredictable and messy – like life.
As an encaustic painter, I am inspired to create unusual and unpredictable works through the use of beeswax, damar resin, and an array of colorful pigments. Encaustic painting is unpredictable and messy – like life. While using a torch to create ebbs and flows, I try to mimic the ebbs and flows of life. The outcome is usually not what was originally mapped out, but nevertheless, is beautiful and unique. I am inspired by color, movement, and the moods the two may evoke. Some colors suggest calmness, but when used with a certain energy and movement, might conjure excitement and liveliness.
