#TOAFtakeover Hello all the way from the Pacific Northwest: I'm @Christy_Branson, an encaustic and mixed media artist living in Spokane, WA USA. I work primarily with beeswax, oil & pigments on large wood panels. My inspiration comes out of the peaceful freedom that I feel when I lose myself in my creative work. More to come!! . . #takeovertuesdaychristybranson #takeovertuesday #theotherartfair #toaf #christy_branson
#TOAFtakeover My process involves layers (sometimes as many as 50) of melted beeswax mixed with Damar resin. I build the piece up one layer at a time, slowly adding pigment, scraping back, mark making, and fusing with fire between each layer until the image reveals itself. #theotherartfair #takeovertuesday #christy_branson
#TOAFtakeover Thank you for allowing me to invade TOAF Instagram & being able to share a bit of my world with you. What's next for me? I will be working tirelessly on all new work for my solo exhibition at Barrister in November. So sad to miss the next TOAF NYC… but until next time, cheers!! 🙏🏼 . #theotherartfair #takeovertuesday #christy_branson #ttfn
