Encaustics Conference Show
Encaustic Conference - Best Foot Forward part 1
"This year at the conference, the conferees were invited to bring one piece that measured 12" x 12" or less to hang in the hallway gallery. The Montserrat staff spent a long time applying tape to the wall to form a grid for the pieces to hang within.
I got there early, when there were only a few pieces installed, so it was fun to see the wall fill up with artwork. There were also a few 3-dimensional pieces that sat on pedestals in front of the wall."
Member of New England Wax
I have always been inspired by the elements of the earth. As I grow my artist self I become more bound to the earth. I live by the sea and it has an important impact in my work. The heavy metal series reflects the treasures found in the tide pools of life. Always keep your eyes and your heart open to the voices of nature around us.
