Inclusion in "Keep It 100" at On Center Gallery in June 2018

I'm pleased to share that I have been invited to exhibit during the annual International Encaustic Conference in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Provincetown has garnered national attention for its history as an art colony. The theme of the show is a play on words about keeping it real -- featuring what's fresh, happening and exciting in the world of contemporary artists incorporating encaustic and cold wax into their practice.

ENCAUSTIC AND COLOR Workshop coming up at Bellevue College January 20, 21, 22nd

Join me

Getting the perfect color and depth can be challenging with encaustic. This class will give you a better understanding of how to work with your basic color palette to unlimited possibilities. Learn how to mix your colors, make and layer glazes, and understand the use of opacity and translucency in your work. See website here to sign up for what to bring. Prerequisite: Introduction to Encaustic or comparable experience. Private message me on FB or email at with questions.

Color Study


Presence / Absence

Artworks by Andrea Benson, Jef Gunn, Deborah Kapoor, Brenda Mallory, Martha Pfanschmidt, Joan Stuart Ross, Andrea Schwartz-Feit, and Kirk Weller

Eight artists working in a diverse manner but with encaustic as a unifying material explore the idea of what is and what is not, what remains and what is lost. For some of them this is a metaphor, and for others it is the basis of their practice. This show will be curated by Martha Pfanschmidt.
