recent private workshops part 2

2 of gail's encaustic paintings, 2 of johnnene's encaustic paintings, gail and johnnene working

my october private encaustic workshop participants were johnnene maddison and gail rhynard, two very fun fiber artists who came all the way from canada to learn encaustic and experience the amazing city of philadelphia! i had a great time teaching these two and they both took to the medium very well, but in very different ways. gail's is more a painterly style, while johnnene's more a collage artist and both created some fine work-which speaks to the unrivaled versatility of this amazing medium. see more of gail's work here and johnnene's here.


  1. I am a follower of yours on twitter and am consistently impressed with your work and the work of the artists you highlight on your blog. We will have a booth at the CAA show in New York in February. If you are attending, please stop by and say hello. I would love to meet you. I don't know the next time I will be in Philadelphia. If I am I will call and see if I can visit your studio. Happy thanksgiving!
