Mixed Media and Encaustic Panels



Brenda Walker
has been captivated by encaustic painting from the moment she was introduced to this ancient medium. Most days she can be found in her home studio, torch in hand and a palette of molten beeswax. Each painting consists of many layers of wax, which are fused with a torch, scraped and carved until the desired amount of texture and depth are achieved. One of her favourite things about encaustic is that found objects can be embedded within the layers of beeswax on each painting (her favourite being 100+ year old pages from antique novels).

Brenda's representational style reflects a simplicity that allows the viewers' own creative thoughts or memories to interact with the paintings, creating a unique and individual experience.
