Encaustic and Paper E-Book

About 2 years ago, I was approached by artist Catherine Nash (her work makes me swoon!) to be part of an exciting project.  She was putting together an e-book called "Authentic Visual Voices" which highlighted artists who are working with wax and paper.  I was flattered to be asked to participate in the project, and now that her project is nearly complete, I can't wait to see the end result!  It will surely be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in working with these materials.  Stay tuned in the next few months for information about its official release to the public!
