My name is Melissa Sanchez.
I am an Encaustic Artist. I have a BA in Art Education from Humboldt State University. I also earned a teaching credential (Multiple Subjects & Art ) from UCDavis. I have been working with Encaustic Paints for over 10 years. I fell in love with this medium because of the way encaustic paint allows me to merge dynamic elements. I use encaustic wax , colored pigments & shellac to create my paintings. The blow torch incorporates the element of fire and movement to make my one of a kind Encaustic Paintings.
