My Story

Born, raised & living in Anchorage, Alaska, I have been painting with the encaustic medium for 15 years. A little over a year ago, I decided to begin my own clothing line by taking my art and imprinting it on leggings, sports bras, phone cases, tote bags, etc., with the intent of creating a “Brand.” A Brand with encouraging messaging around growth & self acceptance.
This is my journey.

Original Encaustic Art

What is Encaustic?

Encaustic, meaning “to burn in” in Greek,  is an art form dating back to the fifth century B.C.

It is a versatile method of painting using beeswax-based paint and a heated palette. 

It is then applied to a wood surface or other porous substrate.
