What is Encaustic?

Encaustic painting dates to the 5th century B.C. and involves fusing together numerous layers of molten beeswax, tree resin and pigments. Each layer of encaustic medium is applied and then fused to the previous layer using a blowtorch. The surface is then scraped or scratched or rubbed with oil paints to create various effects. Unlike other paint mediums, encaustic has this sculptural component to it.

Encaustic paintings are created through the use of beeswax, resin and high heat. Each layer of encaustic medium is applied then fused to the previous layer using a blowtorch. The surface is then scraped or scratched or rubbed with oil paints to create more sculptural effects. 

My Mixed Media and Encaustic paintings are created on archival birch wood panels and are signed, titled, and dated on back. The paintings come with Command Strips(tm) or wired and ready to hang. My mixed media art is generally a combination of watercolors, inks, heavy mediums, and acrylics.

Most Watercolors are matted, have an acid-free backer, and are encased in a clear sleeve for protection. All my matted art is hand signed and dated on the front.

“I have never been one to stay inside the box for more than a minute. I am constantly planning an escape — a way out —  from anything with boundaries. But like a heat-seeking missile I am drawn to the order of grids, and the comfort of squares and circles and shapes with edges. My art and my life are evidence of this contradiction.”
