Artist Elaine Defibaugh will share her insights into the encaustics (melted wax medium) printmaking technique, which does not require the use of a press and can easily be adapted for home or studio.
The images produced are expressive and painterly, and the simplicity of the technique makes it an easy, entry-level process for those interested in creating unique prints on paper.
Defibaugh has studios in Miami and New York City, and has exhibited both nationally and internationally. Her work is featured in the collections of Butler Institute of American Art; Memorial Art Gallery; Whitney Gallery at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center; Jewish Homes; SUNY Brockport; Jewish Homes in Rochester, NY; and various private collections in South Florida. Defibaugh is also the recipient of two Pollock Krasner grants, as well as a Constance Saltonstall Foundation grant. She will be part of the residency program at Deering Estate between January and July of 2015.
