Here I am (left) in my studio with artist Wendy LaValle from the Toronto, Ontario area in Canada. You can read about her experience here at KSL Studio on her Waxy and Words Blog. Read more here. She is doing very strong work and is running her Green Arts Gallery as well.
Congrats Wendy!

Review of KSL Studio, December 15, 2009

I flew in from Toronto Canada to attend a 2 day intensive workshop with Kristin....and it was excellent!! Kristin covered all aspects of encaustic painting from history, to current artists and approaches - she covered a variety of techniques that I got to try; plus safety, and making the medium. I found Kristin to be a very knowledgeable and inspiring artist. Her instruction technique is well organized and professional...excellent handouts and topnotch facility. I can definitely take what I've learned to advance my own practice.
