Jodie’s collection of work reflects her journey into encaustic painting. After a long break from the fine arts, she found herself needing to disconnect from the daily barrage of technology. So, she taught herself the basics of encaustics and began experimenting with photo encaustics. Soon Jodie transitioned into abstract landscapes and nonrepresentational pieces. She enjoys exploring the texture, translucent quality, and fluidity that can be achieved with the medium. Most of her paintings are inspired by observations made during her daily commute and travels and the emotions these experiences invoke.

Encaustic is a wax-based paint made of beeswax, resin, and pigment. The mixture is heated to about 170 degrees Fahrenheit and kept at a molten state for painting. The encaustic paint is applied to a rigid surface. After each layer is applied, the piece is fused with a blowtorch or heat gun. This technique creates a unique texture and vibrancy that’s difficult to reproduce in other mediums.

 Open 11 a.m.-6 p.m. T-Sat, and First Friday from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. during Art Walk. (417) 862-9300
