Encaustic Paintings

I fell in love with the Encaustic medium while working in Carmel, CA, which I wrote about in an article called My Illicit Affair with Hot Wax I’m inspired by the contrast of light and shadow and love creating distressed surfaces and textures, using exaggerated colors inspired by nature. I love using reclaimed wood as my substrates.

I learned to paint Encaustic from artist/instructor William Harsh, Cari Hernandez and Lissa Rankin, artist/instructor and author of Encaustic Art, the Complete Guide to Creating Art with Wax, I’ve been painting in Encaustic since 2007 and have exhibited and sold my work at galleries in Carmel, Benicia, Vallejo and Berkeley.

I’ve been teaching Encaustics since 2014. Click here for information about workshops at Truckee Roundhouse.
