About

See nature in a different light. 

Nature is a wild and beautiful thing. I love trying to take photographs that capture some bits of nature that modern society misses out on. 

The bits that look like might have been pulled straight from Faerie Land or a Brothers Grimm story. 

Mix beeswax, damar resin, oil paints and inks. A touch of shellac. 

And burn. 

It's a magical process. One I first fell in love with way back in the 90s when a show on PBS feature a photographer who coated their paintings in encaustic medium. From that first glimpse, I was hooked. 

It wasn't until this last year that I was able to start fulling this dream and learning to work with encaustic medium. 

I'm running this Kickstarter to help cover the cost of tools and supplies I need to keep following this dream. 

The money raised will go towards things like:

Encaustic Medium

Colored Wax

Oil Paints

Paint Brushes & Tools

Stretch Goal:

If this Kickstarter reaches $1000, I'll be able to buy a vent for my work table.  Working with encaustics can release harmful fumes into the air. I currently work next to an open window with a fan blowing. I will not be able to do this in the winter and therefore won't be able to keep making encaustic art during winter months without a vent system.

Any funds over $1000 will go towards camera equipment. I'd love to create larger art pieces, but am unable to with my current equipment. 

What do you get? Warm fuzzy feelings. A joyous glow about your person. Oh, and beautiful art. 

Each of the photographs featured in this Kickstarter are macro photos of nature taken by me.

You can chose from A, B, C or D. 

Unless you choose to get them all. (It's totally cool if you do that)

Please note: The pictures shown here are not of finished artwork. These are the macro photos before being transformed by encaustic medium. 

Choice A: Bee and Thistle

Choice A

Choice B: Fern

Choice B

Choice C: Little Yellow Flower

Choice C

Choice D: Wilted Daisy 

Choice D

Due to the nature of working with wax and the way I do things, no two finished pieces will look exactly the same. Even if they feature the same photograph. This means your art will have an uniqueness to it.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my Kickstarter. 

Risks and challenges

The main risks for this project are delays in shipping. Both when ordering supplies and sending out finished art. Working with encaustic requires ventilation. Since I currently don't have a ventilation system, I keep my windows open. I can't do that in the winter months. These may also take more time to complete than I think they will.
