Mixed Media Artist

I work primarily in acrylics and collage.I use collage and beewax in my assemblage works and am now completing several shrines using found objects. I have been experimenting with encaustic collage and have found the medium very challenging. The paint is a combination of melted beeswax and pigment. A small amount of damar resin is added for hardness. I mix these paints myself and while painting all custom colors are mixed directly on a hot palette.
I will share my progress with this exciting medium with photos of work in progress and finished pieces.

Can you Judge a Book by it's Cover?

My plain little book needed a new look. I made a fabric cover out of an upholstery scrap. I have boxes of these scraps that I pick up wherever I can find them free for the taking. I am an avid recycler of anything I thing I can use. Which just about covers everything! I have embellished with lots of stitches and bobbin work and will continue to add fluff as I go along. As in buttons, beads and other sew on stuff.
