I spent 30 years in Corporate America and am now finding my way back home to being the creative soul I was destined to be…

This is a mixed media encaustic collage painting.

Encaustic painting is the process of using hot wax (beeswax) as your painting and binding medium. I hand dye my own cloth and make/ paint various paper designs to make my collages. I made all of the papers and fabrics used in this collage using various mediums like acrylic, oil, wax crayon and paint, ink, chalk, and gouache.

Although I’ve been using other mediums for a few years now, I just started my encaustic journey in 2011. Stay tuned, more encaustic art yet to come…

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

  • Thanks so much Robyn… I actually painted the foundation piece of this collage as a stand alone painting… but I liked the colors so much that I scanned the painting and printed it on cloth to use as the base for this encaustic collage… I’m thrilled you liked it enough to feature it in the group. Forever grateful…

    Superb mixed media painting!

  • Wow… John, I am very happy you like this piece. When I first started in encaustics, I thought it would be a medium where I could create pieces with a cross-gender appeal. People in my inner circle would always tell me my work focused too much on women and colors that were too bright for the male taste… Ha! I want them to see your comment… I am now validated, thank you! :-)
