The encaustic medium is magical, vibrant and translucent.  My creative muse guides, inspires and feeds my soul through this medium, mixed media and collage.  Blessing me with endless moments of creative joy and harmony...providing those ahhaa moments about life.  Join me on this creative journey, spend some time reading my musings about this life, the blessed other souls that come into contact with mine, however brief or often, that can leave everlasting imprints on our journey....perhaps our lives might share some similarities, bringing us closer and more connected...and less isolated.

"I suppose there is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one's self, the very meaning of one's soul." ~ Edith Wharton

Here's to finding those expansive moments.....

Some recent photos and student testimonies from teaching a 5-week encaustic program










Here are some comments from the students in a recent evaluation I gave out for this class....

- I liked everything about it, the format/demos.  Nice to have everything provided.  A great sharing of ideas.  You can completely loose yourself in the art form.

- I like how you divided the time between teaching moments and working time.  I appreciated how you made available to us all your supplies.  For me...it gave me a rare opportunity to do something creative.  Because my mother died recently, it gave me the chance to pull together all these feelings and personal icons or symbols to represent something about her life and death.

- Everything...it was all very informative.  Very in depth encaustic collage course, covering a large variety of techniques.  At the end of 5 weeks, a person could feel fairly confident to try pieces on their own.

-Supria is a lovely teacher - very talented, generous and helpful.  A great teacher!

- It was really extensive, covered so many techniques..I got to see what I liked and what I didn't like
- That it is a really thorough introduction and Supria's really helpful..when it comes to what you need, where to get supplies etc. Supria is a wonderful teacher.

- Everything, Transfers.  Awesome and mystical...You rock.
