February’s Artist-Presenter
Victoria Harrison On “Encaustic Printmaking”

OPAA is happy to announce local artist Victoria
(Vicky) Foster Harrison will be the Artist-Presenter
at OPAA’s February 25th General Membership zoom meeting.

Victoria is an Encaustic Printmaker, Encaustic Collage & Mark Making artist who works out of her home studio “Curly Girl Art Studio” in Port Townsend. She teaches in-person classes in Encaustic Printmaking and Beeswax collage for the Port Townsend School of the Arts. She also teaches online courses in Mark Making and Asemic Writing through the Winslow Art Center. Victoria exhibits her work at the Bainbridge Arts & Crafts Gallery and the Grover Gallery. She will be sharing slides of her artwork, and then demonstrate the encaustic printmaking process. Victoria is very happy to answer any and all questions, at any time during the presentation.

Victoria is absolutely smitten with the Encaustic Printmaking process, creating prints with warmed beeswax and paper. Drawn to the aroma of the beeswax, the quickness of the process, a focus on letting go, and the freedom to create without hesitation, she delves into this uniquely modern printmaking process. Her demonstration will share the products she uses, the process of using beeswax on a warmed palette with a variety of strokes, colors and tools – then a sheet of paper is laid on the wax allowing the image to be embedded into the paper, creating a unique print. She is very happy to answer any and all questions, at any time.
