As a therapist, I am constantly looking for new and creative interventions to connect with my clients and to support them as they grow and evolve. However, as an artist, I am always looking for inspiration and challenge myself to explore new mediums and techniques so that I will continue to grow and evolve. This year I’ve started working in encaustics. Encaustic painting is an ancient art form that uses hot bees wax and oil pigments. I’m playing with color and experimenting. The wax dries as soon as it hits the canvas, creating an even greater challenge. But the color is vibrant and exciting, and there is texture as well. The process is amazing and fun! So, today my advice is create, create, create!
