Eileen has recently started to explore painting with encaustics, a paint made up of molten beeswax, tree resin and pigments. She works intuitively and in series, each painting leading to the next. Small marks, circles, and lines, are carved into the warm wax surface, then scraped to reveal the underlying layers. The pieces can have as many as 40 layers of wax.
