Description

Encaustic & Mixed Media works are based on an ancient method of painting with beeswax, known as encaustic (Greek: to heat or burn; dated 4th century BC). Examples from A.D. 100-125 survive today in the form of portraits on mummy castings in Greco-Roman Egypt. By blending pigments with beeswax and a tree resin called damar, I create a medium to paint with. Having experience as a beekeeper, I feel a deep respect for these amazing creatures who fertilizes plants, which supply us with their medicine wisdom and nourishment.
