Lesley Dubey -  Shoreline Studio - Fine Art

Now in my senior years, my art has evolved to encompass the ancient craft of encaustic painting.  With this exciting technique, pigmented bees’ wax is melted, fortified, manipulated and fused to a rigid substrate.  I make my own “paints” from a generous supply of wax from my husband's beekeeping days.  Inspiration comes to me, in part, from the versatility of the medium itself, with  its lasting luminosity and depth of colour.  I have recently been influenced by the surprising images we are receiving from outer space, though I will forever remain inspired by the limitless natural beauty here on earth.
