"Amanda Brathwaite is a self-taught artist inspired by the beauty of the natural world. She is drawn to the extraordinary in the ordinary. Working with the encaustic medium she incorporates mixed media into the canvas, reflecting layers and enticing textures, feeling and emotion. Various elements of interest are added, such as photographs, outside elements, drawings and written material. Oil paints, dry pigments and oils sticks are used to create the desired color palette of choice. From here, layers of pigmented wax are fused layer by layer creating an ethereal depth and transparent luminosity."
