Waxy Drawings

The 'Teeny Tiny Art Show II' is fast approaching! I just received an email from Kate Phillips including some jpegs of the "waxy drawings" she will be exhibiting in February - here is a sneak preview...

...a little bit about Kate:

Kate Phillips is a Scottish artist who currently lives in The Bay Area. She studied printmaking at Glasgow School of Art but for the last 8 years has been working in the encaustic medium. Her drawings and paintings are made using this ancient technique which is a layering of beeswax/resin and pigments fused together with a blow torch. Kate traps found images, old paper and thread between these layers to create intriguing worlds, beckoning the viewer closer, to hear the stories they whisper. (They smell nice too.)
