A wax artist, I paint & sculpt using various types of wax, materials, and dyes. My focus is the living world. Currently, I'm in two galleries--one in Minneapolis, MN and the other in Portland, OR. I am looking for opportunities sell my art.
Please look over my site for more images and explanations of what I do. However, below are some pictures showing bits and pieces of my two lines: Batik and Sculptural Encaustic Photography.
I have 2 Lines--Batik and Encaustic.
My original batiks are all hand drawn and painted using hot wax and dyes on silk or cotton. The sizes and prices vary, but range in size and price from 9 x 12 for $375 up to $1000 for a 24x36 ($14 per linear foot).
Larger commission pieces are available.
Each original batik is mounted on a cradled board [see picture].
Some are adhered using an adhesive and layered with a protective coat of museum quality varnish.
Others are adhered and protected using encaustic material. All are sold ready to hang.
Each original batik takes 40-60 hours to complete.
#1B--Silk Limited Edition Batik Prints
Because each original batik takes 40-60 hours to complete, I pay to have each completed batik scanned on a high-def Scanner--enabling me to create and sell high-quality, limited edition signed and numbered prints on silk.
My Silks line of Limited Edition Batik Prints are printed on silk using archival pigments. They are then hand-mounted on cradled boards using encaustic material and sold ready to hang--no frame needed [see pictures].
Each Silk Limited Edition Print is signed and numbered and takes 3 - 5 hours to complete.
My prices are: $7.50/linear inch.
#1C--Paper Limited Edition Prints
9 x 12 $20 | 15 x 19 $40
5 x 6 7/8 $4.50
Line #2--Encaustic Sculpture
Beginning with one of my photographs printed on silk, it is then mounted on a cradled board using encaustic material.
The focus of the picture is then sculpted, or built out [see pictures].
All pieces are hand-sculpted--no molds are used in any way.
Prices are determined by complexity of design rather than size and range from $75 to $1200.
There is a lot of room within this line to customize based on a customers' wants.
