"Unveiling the Beauty of Encaustic Art: Exploring the Allure and Potential"

Tonya Trest in Art Studio Floral 3D Art in Red and Blue

Welcome to my studio and this wonderful world of wax that I am thrilled to share with you. It's in moments like these that I'm reminded of the magic of encaustic art – a craft that's been cherished since ancient times. And today, I'm beyond excited to give you a peek into my process, where tradition meets modern innovation in the form of 3D encaustic art.

Encaustic art traces its roots back to ancient Greece, where artists used beeswax and pigments to create stunning masterpieces. Fast forward to today, and I'm keeping that tradition alive, using 100% pure beeswax sourced with love and care for our planet.

But here's where things get really cool – I've taken encaustic art to the next level by adding dimension and texture. Each piece I create is meticulously sculpted by hand, layer by layer, until it comes to life in a way that just begs to be touched. Seriously, these artworks are more than just something pretty to look at – they're an experience you can feel.

My latest collection of bright, airy florals and dreamy coastal forms, bursting with vibrant colors like teal, magenta, orange, coral, yellow, and blue against a crisp white backdrop bring a slice of paradise into your home.

And here's the best part: my art isn't meant to gather dust in a stuffy gallery. Nope, it's meant to be lived with. That's why I love seeing my pieces find their place in the presence of art lovers, collectors, interior designers, and commercial spaces across the country.

So, whether you're a seasoned art aficionado or just someone who appreciates a pop of color in their life, I invite you to join me on this journey. Let's celebrate nature's beauty, honor tradition, and unleash our creativity together as I share my techniques and process with you right here every week.

I hope you will subscribe so we can stay in touch!
