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 working on my own, with the help of an online course from Kunstfreiraum in Switzerland. So it was nice to have someone look over my shoulder and steer me in the right direction.

After the course 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!
