I have been a fan of Elise Wagner’s encaustic work for several years. I especially love her topographical pieces. I came across Elise on Instagram, and became intrigued with the encaustic medium she works in.
I never had the chance to see her work in person until recently. We have been exploring the Oregon coast for the last few months, and eventually we made it up to Astoria, OR. We happened into a gallery in Astoria, Imogen Gallery, and they had several of Elise’s pieces for sale. In fact they had just started carrying her work.
I was thrilled, it really was quite a rush to see the work of someone you admire in person. The size, texture and depth of her pieces are really enhanced by being in the same space with them. I was so inspired by her work, I might just have to take a class with her sometime. She offers workshops in her studio and beyond.
Thanks for creating your art Elise! I hope to see more in the future.
