Encaustic art has grabbed my heart since I first learned about it through Suze Weinberg.

I now preside over the group that inspired me so in the beginning, and love attending exhibits by my friends.

Morpho Gallery has hosted an encaustic show for four years, and this year’s Edges exhibit is the best one to date.

My pieces were well received, especially since I decided to hang them on edge.

I like Alex Wilhite’s textures.

Book covers in wax might not be practical, but do combine two of my loves.

Dan Breslin’s dimensional work certainly has an edge to it!

I had seen Pat Lagger’s pieces during Sarah Krepp’s critique and love how she keeps expanding on her theme.

Kelly Mathews’ eye was part of that critique as well.
