Encaustic & Mixed Media

About the artist

Sandra Alderman – Encaustic & Mixed Media Artist

I am propelled in my work by the journey of discovery through the process rather than just the end result. My intention is to draw you, the viewer,  to your own personal thoughts and spark memories of your life .

Using a variety of unusual materials and a depth of texture, I connect my innermost being to the feast of opportunity before me, that to become one with my work will evolve with new meaning.

The influence to my work comes not only from the natural, sea, earth and sky, but from the emotion brought by the various people that hold a footprint in my path.

The Encaustic work that I do, using molten beeswax, resin and pigment with a torch to apply, has a history dating back from ancient Egypt around 100- 300 AD.  The word Encaustic originates from the Greek word ‘ enkaustikos’ which means to burn in. The process is absolutely fascinating -the fluid and sculptural qualities of the wax, becoming a part of the natural beauty . . the physical tearing down and building up of molten beeswax, mixed with damar resin, the end result all part of the work speaking my voice from within.

 

As a artist of many mediums, with my focus in Encaustics, I strive to capture the universal and emotional connection to my surroundings by embedding natural materials and found objects in a intuitive fashion, letting the work speak it’s own story into your life and mine, as I continue to make my way through to new places yet undiscovered.

 Alderman is an award winning artist in photography, mixed media and encaustics in Southeastern Texas and Virginia Beach and has juried into several national shows, and has exhibited throughout the Tidewater Virginia area.

 “I am curious by nature and am continually in a state of learning, always pressing towards something unseen. My family is full of artists of some type, painters, singers, song writers, photographers and crafters-  we have a strong creative gene pool, just born to make something!”
