Encaustic is a wax based paint (composed of beeswax, resin, and pigment), that is kept molten on a heated palette. It is applied to a porous surface and then reheated to fuse the paint. It can be polished to a high gloss, carved, scraped, layered, collaged, dipped, cast, modeled, sculpted, textured, and combined with oil.

Femmes Fortes (Strong Women)
“Femmes Fortes” signifies strong women in French. Being of French and Spanish descent from the Deep South, women are strong and fearless. Southern women are taught from a young age the importance of manners, respect for one's elders, and to “never judge a book by its cover.” We may look dainty, but there is an inner strength that exudes from within. Red is my favorite color, this collection was created to give a voice to my soul.
