Hello, my name is Silvana and one of my passions is Encaustic painting.

My work is done with a hot air gun, an iron and a stylus often working late into the night. All of my tools have to be plugged in. There are more things to burn yourself on than a welding shop. Encaustic technique was not invented by fragile ladies, it was invented by ancient Greek fisherman to seal their boats against the harsh storms of the Mediterranean.
Today’s technique of using molten wax is that whenever the iron touches it, the wax colour melts and can be re-worked, so I can continue to change my artwork until I am happy with it. I find it an exciting medium, fun, and very addictive.

My inspiration and influences come from my Pagan belief and my love for life. From the connections I’ve made with different cultures, people, religions and countries. From this beautiful world we live in and the love that we share among us.

I started taking digital photos in late 2006. Learning how to use my camera and image editing software has been a fascinating journey. Photography has provided another outlet for my creative nature and continues to provide balance between the scientific/logical and artistic/spiritual sides of me.
So I have found another passion!! ; )
