Mary Farmer's abstract encaustic paintings are inspired by her natural surroundings in Asheville. "It's the light, shattered, reflected and eye-bending that draws me to this ancient and sacred medium of encaustic," says Mary, a leader and teacher of the encaustic painting technique.
Mary works in this ancient wax medium at her Asheville studio. She is well known for her evocative Landscapes, highly textured Topographies and serene Soft Landings. Farmer advocates and encourages artists to respect their place in the creative economy. Mary offers classes and workshops to aspiring encaustic painters.
