Hello everyone,


I’m delighted to bring you this class where we explore the beautiful combination of luminous encaustic wax and vintage whimsical themed portraits and  figurative subjects.

For years, I have adored this marriage of mediums and now I want to share some of my favorite techniques.

Whether you are looking to combine photography, collage or your mixed media paintings with wax - this is the class for you !  I will guide you through all these processes.

Encaustic wax creates a glowing layer of mystery and mood to your art work  and allows for much experimentation with  and exploration of other mediums too! You will create truly expressive and unique art work  that will have you hooked on this gorgeous blend.


I hope you will join me in class!
