If you've never seen an encaustic painting come to life, just stop by Constance Williams' studio. Chances are, she's there and she's genuinely excited to give you a demonstration of this unique art form gaining in popularity - in part due to Constance's passion for the medium. The combination of resin, beeswax, pigment, and fire draws art lovers and artists to her studio, to admire and to learn this fascinating technique.
An exec for a greeting card company in a former life, Constance now channels her creative and professional energy into encaustic painting and running Constance Williams Fine Art (moving early 2013 to The Wedge) . When she's not wielding a blowtorch and coaxing vibrantly-hued wax into abstract paintings, she represents a number of talented artists in her studio/gallery and is the acting president of the River Arts District Association - which sponsors the twice-yearly Studio Strolls (in June and November).
Stop by Constance Williams Fine Art to meet Constance and hear her tell the story of encaustic painting - open seven days a week.
