I am a St. Louis artist with a studio in Lafayette Square. My private studio space doubles as a comfortable and safely equipped classroom where I share my passion and knowledge of painting with encaustic (beeswax and tree resin) to anyone interested in this ancient art medium. Painting, primarily with encaustic, has been my driving force since 2004. More recently I have been approaching my work with oil and cold wax medium. During the cooler months, I offer 'Open Studio Time' for those with prior encaustic experience.
As a Core Support Artist/Instructor for R&F Handmade Paints, I offer workshops and demos in retail spaces and art centers, and material talks about the R&F product line including their Encaustic paints and Pigment Sticks. I am also available for professional outreach to artists and would be happy to bring information about encaustic to your school or college.
