Botanical Fine Art Encaustics
Nature has captivated me for as long as I can remember. From the moment I held a camera in my hands, I found myself immersed in capturing the intricate details and sweeping vistas of the natural world.
Drawing inspiration from the wonders of botanical life, my collection of botanical photos came to life through close-up photography. Within my studio, I meticulously captured the essence of orchids, tillandsia, succulents, seasonal flowers, and exotic houseplants. These images were then delicately printed on rice paper, each one a testament to the subtle beauty found in nature’s secrets.
But it didn’t end there. To truly immortalize these dreamlike visions, I carefully layered and encased the prints in a luminous wax embrace. This transformative process not only added a timeless quality to the artwork but also ensured that these ethereal, floating images would be preserved for generations to come.
Through my passion for photography, the delicate medium of wax encaustics, and a deep reverence for the botanical realm, I aspire to awaken a sense of wonder and awe in those who encounter my creations.
