I wanted to use driftwood as a rustic frame to hold an encaustigraphic collage. “Love for Trees in Midwinter” is the result. I also incorporated polymer clay, stone and glass to make this quite an assemblage of colorful and natural materials.
Feathers are one of the most popular forms I’ve made—people often ask, “Is this a real feather?” even though the colors are so wildly fantastical. Real feathers are often problematic —not even legal to own in some cases— but with e-graphic feathers, you can make as many, in as many colors, as you like! Jewelry applications like earrings or hair ornaments are just two possible avenues for exploration, but I love simply hanging them in a window or from the branch of a plant (so lightweight!) to see the colors in the sun or gently moving in the breeze.
