Congratulation Julie!!! You can see more of her work here.

close up of Turquoise Dream
'The Secret Garden' Some parts of the prints came out so clear with a lot of rust I decided to only add a layer of beeswax and resin to bring out the deep color even more. This one reminds me of the garden gates I saw and admired all over South Africa.

|encaustic rust print with embroidery|
African Soul is one of those pieces that naturally happened with out any effort. I felt more like the instrument through which it was created rather then the creator. It started with a rust print, wait it actually started many months ago when I found a hat stand at the thrift store. I came home an dug out a hat I bought in Africa (many a ladies wore this type of hat on Sunday for church going.)
It has been on my bookshelf in the living room and I've been enjoying admiring the craftsmanship. When I learned I was to be the emerging artist for Art at Highland I started sketching and the design on this hat kept coming across the page.
One of the many rust prints I did was just begging for the embroidery stitches to be put on it, and it became 'African Soul'
