About

About me:
I love the idea of art being accessible to everyone. Much like the food revolution inspired by Julia Child and Alice Waters (among others) there is an art revolution taking place right here on Etsy. Instead of mass produced "convenience art" Etsy offers imperfectly perfect goods made by human hands. I am thrilled to be a part of this revolutionary community and want to thank you for taking the time to check out my work.

You can now peek into my studio and learn a little more about the encaustic process at my new blog here- http://tangledskystudio.blogspot.com/

Encaustic Painting:

Each original painting is created with an ancient technique using layers of beeswax, resin crystals and pigment. The process is known as encaustic which literally means "to burn in". The beeswax/resin mix is kept molten on a heated palette and brushed onto wood or canvas and quickly hardens. Once the wax cools heat is then applied to fuse each layer to the one below. Additional layers of wax, oil pastel, and ephemera can be added to achieve depth and texture. As this process is repeated several times the painting develops a soft depth and lush quality not found in any other medium.
