A bit about Christine
I approach art intuitively without any plan or scheme. Each piece tells me where it needs to go as the work begins to take shape. As a self taught Encaustic artist, I fell in love with the ancient art form in late 2012. Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. My hobby of candle making made me question what other forms and figures wax can take. While researching forms of wax art, there it was, the discovery of encaustic. This medium has taken me to a creative place I’d never been before. I have found my free spirit in what is often called a lost art.
