3D Encaustic Workshop

Last Fall I had a blast learning more Encaustic 3D techniques during a workshop with Helen Dannelly and Alicia Forestall-Boehm. This workshop is offered again in mid-March, and I am finally getting around to writing about it. 🙂 First I had angel photobomb a Bridgeport Art Center sculpture. Our first day was about creating 3-D […]

Scarfpin Collection at Evanston Stitchworks

Since my foray onto sewing I have been eager to incorporate fabric into my wax and wire designs too. The Ladybugs with fabric scraps are holding up well. Then a few weeks ago while popping by Evanston Sticthworks Amalia asked me about making scarf pins. I had already designed a safety pin for a friend, […]

Encaustic 2017 Show

In addition, I am always inspired by the works of my friends, and I enjoyed perusing the various walls […]

The Abstract Show

Abstract hard is a contentious topic, and I don’t quite understand it all the time. Nonetheless, I found myself submitting my Hexaptych to the Abstract 4 Show juried by Ahavani Mullen. One of my pieces, Infinity, was accepted into the show. I’ll be among familiar FUSEDChicago artists, including Carol Hamilton, Rebecca Stahr, Carol L. Meyers, […]
