Photos from my photo encaustic workshop at Elizabeth Messina's studio. It was great meeting and teaching Maria and Kelly, two amazing women who are both Elizabeth's employees. Elizabeth and I have been friends since college, so it is always nice to reconnect, share art, and create.
Elizabeth and I went to San Francisco Art Institute where we studied with Linda Conner. Elizabeth has published two books, The Luminous Portrait and The Silver Lining. Her work can be seen on Kissthegroom.com. She has an amazing career and publishes work all the time in magazines! I absolutely love spending time with her. She has shared so many important values and creative inspiration with me! My encaustics and her photographs just are a perfect match!
