Photo-encaustics are a perfect fusion of my photography and quest for a singular work of art. Each piece is unique and can never be recreated.

I've created this series capturing real statues, stained glass, or other memorial items I've photographed in cemeteries and churches.

Photo-encaustics feature a real photograph which is transferred and fused into layers of wax on a thick wood surface using a blow torch.  The effect is a ghostly, antique feel.

Encaustics are extremely archival, and will preserve an image as long as the work is care for properly.  The subtle changes in the layers of wax over a piece, the bubble holes, and overall aesthetic lend to its unique, eternal feel.

On these thicker pieces, I have infused wax around the entire edge of the piece as well.

What you're getting:

1 -- 5x5 deep cradle encaustic artwork: They come unframed and should be set in a frame without glass, or you can hang it directly on the wall. The sides are finished. This piece is thick enough to sit nicely on a bookshelf. Signed.
1 -- care sheet for your new encaustic
