An accomplished encaustic artist, Tonya uses the traditional encaustic mixture of beeswax and resin to sculpt exquisite 3D floral paintings, seascapes and abstracts.  Encaustic, which consists of wholly organic materials found in nature, lends itself to the overall theme of the beauty and fragility of nature.  Her use of wax gives a rich optical effect to the pigment making the finished work startlingly lifelike.

Incorporating a variety of materials, including alcohol ink, shellac, pan pastels and handmade papyrus allows her to create luminous depth and ethereal shapes and forms that capture the essence of beeswax and connect with the viewer on a visceral and transformative level.
