They say that good things come in small packages, and it's true! In this Walnut Creek encaustic painting class, you'll create not just one painting but a series of small paintings that all relate to one another.

Just like a professional artist putting together a gallery show, you'll make a cohesive series of works on 3x3, 4x4 or 5x5 inch boards. Each painting will relate by color, texture, line or theme. You decide, you are the artist!

No previous experience is necessary for this class, as it's completely beginner-friendly. You will learn beginning painting basics such as brush techniques, color theory and texture tools, and there will be plenty of time to experiment.

You can make as many DIY paintings as you like. A series could be as few as 3 paintings or as many as 12. After class, you'll get to take them home and you'll just have to decide where to hang them up!

Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, I received my BA from Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, Iowa, and continue my arts education though workshops and specialized instruction. Currently living in Walnut Creek, CA, I am an encaustic painting instructor, working artist and advocate for the arts. In 2020, I co-developed a virtual gallery and developed a YouTube channel called The Encaustic Edge. I also started a business coaching artists, at all levels in their careers. I serve on several art boards, volunteer at galleries in the San Francisco Bay area, and host live and virtual encaustic demonstrations.

Encaustic is an ancient artform that originates with the Greeks and Egyptians. Layers of molten beeswax and a blow torch are my idea of a good time!

Through the years, I have discovered how fulfilling it is to teach the art I love to make. It is my pleasure to feed people’s creative appetites, give them new knowledge and share ideas. My artwork has been exhibited in Turkey, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Washington, New York, and California, and I have collectors around the globe.
