Thank you for your interest and enthusiasm about Ancestor Art!
I’m continually captivated by essential creativity meeting unique ancestral story telling and I love to share it with others!
Ancestor Art is the perfect way to highlight a modern photo lost amongst the cloud -OR- finally get that antiquated photo of Grandma or someone special out of closet!
Encaustic Story Collage
Design a heirloom masterpiece using original vintage/decorative papers, inks, stencils, ephemera, found objects and an evocative ancestral photo to tell your family story.
During the workshop you will learn how and be inspired to:
- use vintage + decorative papers to create a background story
- "dress" your ancestors with paints + inks
- create texture + aging effects for interest and contrast
- enjoy found objects / 3D elements for symbolism and metaphors
- use encaustic medium as an endearing topcoat for collage
