ENCAUSTIC • Mixed Media with Melted Wax 

My Past work in textile design and glass has greatly influenced my current work in encaustic.  

Although textiles and glass may seem to be mediums more different from eachother than any you could imagine, they are actually similar in one significant way.  In working with both textile dyes and fused glass, transparebcy and layering of color is what creates the depth and visual interest. Dye and glass are both transparent mediums.  

It is not surprising that Dale Chihuly once said that he did many studies for his blown glass pieces in watercolor, since it most closely mimicked the interaction of liquid glass
