Ruth Maude is a Canadian artist exhibiting original, contemporary, mixed media encaustic paintings in the Greater Toronto Area. She paints with molten beeswax, which is an ancient medium called encaustic that uses heat to apply and fuse the medium.
Encaustic Mixed Media Paintings
The works exhibited in Edith’s Album tell stories of lives lived, of places and objects.
I combined images from Edith’s album with my own photographs of rust and peeling paint and with ephemera—book covers and pages, stamps, sewing patterns, recipes and postcards, music from old hymnals, and birch bark—all layered with encaustic medium.
