Ice Dreams


Celebrating the first official day of winter with some amazing icy art! 



On Mount Javornik, part of a mountain range in eastern Slovenia, photographer Marko Korosek captured these beautiful images of ice that is formed by high winds and freezing fog.  Some great inspiration here for sculpture. 


Russian photographer Andrew Osokin captures wintery magic at a micro level. Check out these captivating images of ice formations:










Francis Latreille captures mother natures stunning arctic sculptures. Love the dark blues and the beautiful layers. So inspiring...





Any ice art collection must include a few works by one of my favorites…

They're Back! Workshops in 2016!


Good news my friends…I am offering encaustic workshops in 2016 and have posted the new line up on my website: Encaustic Workshops

Choose a session that's right for you:


1-Day Encaustic Intensive 

2-Day Encaustic Immersion

1, 2 or 3-Day Private Sessions 


Space is limited and early registration is recommended. The April 2-Day is nearly full but I have spaces open for all classes at the moment. 


Join me in the studio for an in depth exploration into the art of painting with encaustic. I will demystify the process of working with this medium and share some of my methods for creating unique painting effects.


Small class size (usually 6 to 8 students) makes for a very personalized learning experience and students of all skill levels gain from the intimate studio environment. Due to the limited number of spaces available per class early registration is recommended to secure your spot.

In combination with encaustic, students will be introduced to the use of image transfer, embedding elements into wax, incorporating mixed media such as oil paint, pastels and paper as well as a variety of mark making devices and techniques. You will learn how to make your own medium and be provided with additional resources on materials and safe studio practices. Basic materials for all workshops will be supplied in the studio for an additional fee. Materials fee includes: panels, encaustic medium and the use of tools.

See you in the studio!
