Ember Fairbairn is a fine artist of various media including, oil, encaustic, mixed media .
recent statement: " i paint, pure and simple, the form aften is the basis of the content and it emerges from there. What usually emerges are refelctions and experiences of the sometimes the superconciousness and sometimes the subconcious or taps into the collective conciousness, its obsessive and it enables me to make sense of the world, and others respond individually to the work which i thoroughly enjoy".

Message me or go to my website for details on encaustic or life drawing workshops.
old artist statement: “My art making is generally a process of going to a silent place and waiting to see what emerges into my concious awareness, but sometimes I set out with an idea of what I want to create but I find that when i employ the former process it leaves me with a deeper sense of satisfaction and a realisation of something about myself and my environment, it is like the art is telling me a story or a parable”.
2012 Ember has been an exhibitor at art melbourne and previously represented by Agora gallery new york.
