Kirsten Wilhelm has been an artist of many mediums for over 25 years. Initially working in clay, oils, and acrylics, she found encaustic painting a new way to express her creativity. The textures and immense flexibility have encouraged her to work with more freedom and intensity. Encaustic is a mixture of beeswax, damar, and pigments. It is one of the oldest forms of painting. Kirsten has always been intrigued by the gritty working areas of a city.
