Inspired by the delightful instructors of the upcoming encausticamp, I am beginning my first blog! As children, we never went camping; I never got a taste for "roughing it." So, when Trish Seggebruch invited me to teach at the first camp dedicated to "all things encaustic, " I had to think about it. Then...I got a look at the camp! We aren't roughing it! In fact, meals are going to be catered, days are going to be spent in exciting workshops taught by leading encaustic and mixed media artists from around the country...and there is still time for camp kinds of experiences, like pajama party art sharing and late night camp shopping for art "stuff".

This year I am teaching at several locations around the country, but this one near the coast of Oregon has me really excited. If you have ever spent July in San Antonio, you will know what I mean! I think I am going to meet my newest 150 best friends!

I invite all of you to check out the camp information at to plan your vacation with all of us. What could be better than three days of encaustic "indulgence" as Trish likes to say...Full day workshops...and your own 150 or so new best friends.
