Encaustic , cold wax and oil, acrylic
Sandi Wilson is a professionally trained commercial photographer who discovered she could beautifully meld the art side of her photography and her painting with the depths that working in *Encaustic (beeswax and Dammar resin) could give her. She enjoys the ability to transfer images, incorporate collage and mixed media to create textural pieces. The use of cold wax and oil has given her the freedom to achieve greater color depth and movement in her compositions.
Sandi has been commissioned to do many “Bio Paintings” both by individuals and corporations with the desire to personalize their history through fine art. Some of these clients include Kevin Plank of Under Armour, Hopkins Bayview Hospital and St. John’s College High School to name a few.
Her work is collected both nationally and internationally. She paints out of her farmhouse studio in Baltimore County, Maryland where she resides with her husband.
*Encaustic medium is one of the oldest forms of painting as the Greeks and Egyptians worked with it and many examples are to be seen today such as at the Met in NYC.
