Wendy Franklund Miller – Painter, Encaustic
As a painter I have explored many mediums throughout my life but it was Jake’s influence of beekeeping that led me to painting with a mixture of beeswax, damar crystals and pigment called encaustic. My work references a growing collection of found objects, transforming them as metaphors for larger ideas.
For me, making art is a delicate balance of pushing ahead into the unknown then dropping back to look, listen and see. It is a balance of knowing and not knowing and trusting that.
