Her actual paintings are much more ‘alive’ than these photos can show.
“I was introduced to encaustic painting and I was hooked. I love combining different media with the wax and manipulating each piece with either heat or chemicals to create my desired effect.”
In addition to traditional encaustic painting, Gruett creates pieces by combining digital photography and acrylic, oil and bees wax.
“I love to experiment with bees wax and various media to create abstract, multi-layered and multi-textured pieces.”
