I am a Beekeeper and an Encaustic artist, – using beeswax as my medium. Many layers of melted wax, tinted or left clear are applied to a board and worked just like paint. Using my original photographs images are transferred into the layers of wax. As an artist whose medium is beeswax I want to use the materials of my art respectfully. Keeping bees is an awe-inspiring thing and I am grateful to the bees for providing such an excellent medium to create art with. Thank you Bees!
