- I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.

Fall always reminds me of crows. As I travel to work each day, I pass numerous fields. Maybe of them are barren from recently harvested corn, and grasses. Often, I see the crows hopping about searching for treasures. They amaze me; I wish I could sit and watch their antics for hours.

The more I work with Cold Wax medium, the more excited I get!
It is really hard to STOP!
I have had several opportunities to teach workshops, in my studio, at the Studio School, and my latest experience,
at the League of Roanoke artists Retreat.
Teaching is a passion....so is creating art,
so combining the two is sheer heaven!
I have been so impressed with everything my fellow artisans have created.
Below is just a sampling from the latest class.
Should you be interested in classes,
or workshops in cold wax and/or encaustics,
please email or call.

Susie was inspired by the magical pond and the colorful woods right outside the lodge.

....and lastly, I followed up with a critique and further discussion on other ways to work with the media, and how to frame these particular works.

This past weekend, I had the good fortune of teaching another cold wax workshop. This time I worked with the League of Roanoke Artists at Camp Alta Mons. I will post photos soon....
