“Encaustic or “burning in,” is an ancient Egyptian and Grecian painting method with beeswax. I’ve developed my own encaustic painting technique over the years that gives my work a dream like quality. I am inspired to narrate the natural world, social constructs and the world around me within these layers. I guess you could call me a storyteller who seals her thoughts and dreams in wax.” – Jeni Stallings
