Encaustic Art

I’ve only had the pleasure of playing with Encaustics a few times. I learned from the wonderful artist Sheary Clough-Suiter. Her work is amazing. She shows primarily in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska while doing some shows here in Colorado Springs.

In the two classes I took from her I learned so much about Encaustic and it was such a friendly environment to learn this new medium.

At the beginning I was afraid I would hate it because of it’s fast drying nature and my inner loathing of acrylic paint because of that similar nature. But in the end, it’s become one of my favorite mediums and I’d love to get a station setup in my hows to continue to explore the nuances of it.
