In February I did the course “From 2D to 3D- Transforming Materials with Encaustic & Alchemy” at atelier Zijdelings in Tilburg. I learned a lot of new techniques from the trainer, Janice Yntema.
Before the course I had spent about 3 months discovering this fairly new medium with the help of an online course by Bettina Egli Sennhauser from Kunstfreiraum in Switzerland.
After these courses I definitely starting moving in my own direction, with as a result a number of works that play with structure and colour.
Unfortunately I had to take a break from Encaustics. But it’s a fun break! We are in Canada, exploring the West. There will be lots of inspiration from nature to continue my work in Encaustics as soon as we get home!
