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.....

Art 09 photos and draw prize winner announcement

Art09, Metro Convention Centre in Toronto, On. Canada.  This is a recent show collaborative that I participated in with my brother, Soumen Karmakar, Photographer.   

My brother and I recently participated in a joint venture, exhibiting at the Art09, first annual show...we called our collaborative "WAXSCAPES"...he is a photographer, does lovely black and white landscape photography...and some colour too...we decided to try collaborating using wax and photography together.   It was a great beginning to maybe something larger one day.......I tried my hand at building wax on top of his photographs, one of which was of these lovely trees.  I built an image of a tree using the encaustic medium, which was 3-dimensional in nature...this piece sold at the show to a buyer from Florida..unfortunately we did not get a chance to photograph this piece before it went out into the world..but a small glimpse of it can be seen behind us in this shot above.

Tracy Hendricks and Myself, Supria Karmakar.  Tracy is a longtime friend from highschool days, fact she was my very FIRST friend when I immigrated from London, England to Canada....These photos are compliments of Tracy..thanks so much Tracy for your support and sharing.  Below is a photo of my friend Cheryl Orletsky....she is a fabulous animal lover and we call her the "Dog Guru" check out the cool things she is doing and building with her life for she has a wonderful gift with dogs, cats, and animals in general....

Group shot...Marjorie, Supria, Cheryl, Gilda, Soumen and Rhea.
