Kathleen is a self-taught encaustic artist living in Ocean Isle beach, NC. Originally from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, she has moved and travelled with her husband around the world learning various art forms. Encuastic is a new medium for her and she is still excited to be learning how to work with the materials. Her main focus has been fiber art, for which she has won many awards and has placed pieces into several private collections.
Encuastic is a mixture of wax and Damar Resin that is melted together before being applied in heat-fused layers to different substrates such as wood or masonite.
