Artist StatementMore >>
Smoothness, transparency, depth and patterns are fitting descriptions of my encaustic paintings. I am Deborah Llewellyn, an artist and professional photographer based in Atlanta, GA. I developed a love for painting with wax about 6 years ago and never looked back.
My paintings are a combination of beeswax & demar medium, oil paints, coldwax and photography. I make the encaustic medium in order to control the mixing of colors. My work is physical as well as spontaneous to create. The wax medium has to be heated, melted then brushed or poured onto wood panels. A Blow torch and heat gun are used to move the wax, scrapers and solvents are used to
