"Settled," Mixed Media Encaustic by Pam Nichols

Manuela Kalestiantz, President of the IEA, suggests to viewers, "Allow your senses to take you into this art medium world, where everything is possible and where you can travel as far as your imagination dares to take you."

"Coral Reef" encaustic by Manuela Kalestiantz

The encaustic process involves luminous layers of beeswax - combined with Damar resin and colored pigment - to be heated, applied to a surface, manipulated into multi-colored images or carved designs and then fused. Fusing occurs between each layer of material. The word "encaustic" comes from the Greeks and means "to burn in."
