Flowers make the earth laugh - join in the fun! At this Walnut Creek paper craft class, you'll learn how to make faux flowers to add to your encaustic paintings.

Three-dimensional content is especially fun when painting with the encaustic medium, as you will discover in this beginner-friendly art workshop. An experienced artist will guide you step-by-step through the process of creating your flowers. Using specialty papers, sewing patterns, and other materials, you will learn how to make flowers that you can embed into your encaustic paintings.

No previous experience necessary to succeed. If you're looking for Bay Area activities that will enhance your creativity, give this class a go!

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.
