Emerita Urquhart, encaustics artist
After attending her first encaustic class with Andrea Bird, 11 years ago, Emerita fell in love with the way that beeswax medium can be manipulated into a variety of textures and effects. The sky is the limit with what you can do with encaustics and mixed media. She is just scratching the surface and is happy to be a member of WAC.
It wasn’t until after her retirement from a medical profession that she dove into her art, studying with other artist like Christina Lovisa and Alicia Tormey.
How she relates to the natural beauty around her is what gives her inspiration. She paints intuitively in such a way that her paintings are an expression of her soul.
