Bumble Belly Designs :: Amy Keller
Amy's current work consists of her paper cut drawings collaged in layers of wax. Her pieces accentuate the depth that is characteristic of encaustic. Oil stick, silver leaf, metallic powder and pigments are also incorporated into some of her pieces. Her main influences are her summers on Cape Cod, her two children, vintage maps and books.
*Encaustic wax is a combination of beeswax and damar resin. It is painted onto the board hot and reworked with various tools like a heat gun or hot iron. Its sculptural quality offers endless possibilities.
