One of the largest in my current collection, 'Breakthrough' is bright and vibrant and brings bold colour to any room. Part of my new 'Rise Up' series, it helps tell our story as we re-emerge on the world stage and in our own lives - ready to live a bold new future.
A mixed-media piece combing beeswax, oil paint and beach/sea glass from the shore of Lake Ontario - perfectly weathered from our past but ready to live another 100 years.

Encaustic is one of the oldest forms of painting. People often think it will melt. It will only melt if you get it very, very hot. Think of candle wax and it only melts when touching an actual flame but sunny windows aren't typically an issue. To keep it dust free, and clear the natural 'fog' that develops over time for the first year or so, simply take a clean cotton cloth and buff the entire painting - a quick 20 seconds is all it should take, do not use any cleaning chemicals.
