Shima creates Encaustic Art – the ancient art of painting with beeswax. To Shima, encaustic is her meditation, an open-eye prayer where in the spirit of play her prayer beads are replaced with beeswax and pigment, hake brushes, heat guns and hot plates. May this same Spirit guide you in the radiant and illuminative process of creativity that is uniquely you.
Encaustic is the ancient art of painting with beeswax. Layer upon layer of beeswax mixed with demar resin and pigment is painted and fused with heat to the layer below merging and blending into tone and hue of its own creating abstract imagery left to your imagining.
