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.....

The Wax Book Catalogue/Book is coming out soon......going to the publisher end of the is a sneak peak

Above is the cover of "The Wax Book:  Altered, Repurposed, Remade" - this is a very professionally designed book of an exhibit I curated for the 6th Annual International Encaustic Conference...The exhibit opens at the Truro Center for the Arts, Gallery 10, at Castle Hill in Truro, MA. USA.

Many thanks go to Sarah E. Rehmer for the layout design, Nancy Natale for the editing and Milisa Galazzi for birthing the idea of turning the exhibit into a catalogue and handling sales and marketing...this small group that came together quite organically, would not have happened if it weren't for our passion for the book arts and the vision and belief that all that can be imagined is possible..

The Wax Book: Altered Repurposed, Remade
Curator: Supria Karmakar ; Editor: Nancy Natale
Layout Design: Sarah E. Rehmer ; Sales & Marketing: Milisa Galazzi 

37 wonderful pages of 13 artists' work on books, elements of books, in both two dimensional and three dimensional formats.
