Printmaking

My primary printmaking method is encaustic image transferring. This process is done by printing the original image in carbon and transferring and fusing it onto a layer of encaustic wax medium. The traditional method rarely done, as it is time consuming and yields unpredictable results. Additionally, the process requires the wax to be at a very specific temperature, thus limiting the scale on which the transfer can be applied.

Through several years of experimentation, I have developed the means to create encaustic image transfers at any scale while preserving 100% of the integrity of the original image. I can comfortably boast that I am the only encaustic artist in the world who can create encaustic image transfers in this fashion with this level of clarity.
