Barbara MacRobie, Public Information Coordinator for the Missouri Arts Council, wrote a beautiful article about encaustic artists in Missouri for the July 2014 online newsletter: Bees, Sticky Trees, and Blowtorches: Encaustic Painting Enthralls Missouri Artists (pdf).
The 15 page article showcases many of my WaxCentric members, as well as introduces us to new artists across the state. The following WC members who were interviewed by phone for the article include:
Mary Beth Shaw
The article touches on each artists connection to the medium, as well as statements about inspiration, intent and process. A well written, up-beat overview of encaustic in general, and artists wielding torches and hot paint!
