The Awesome Stephane Lee
On this, the second and final day of Stephanie Lee's awesome plaster workshop, she taught students how to apply encaustic wax onto the pieces that they had layered with plaster, joint compound, paints, inks, and other assorted layers.
Here she is with Jenelle, assessing a piece that had been waxed before adding heat to it with a blow torch ... and then going for it and adding the heat.
Aside from the individualized attention that Stephanie gave each student, she provided an immense amount of information and knowledge through mini lectures and demonstrations.
A truly masterful teacher.
It was a dream come true for me to have Stephanie teach in Studio CRESCENDOh. I've been a fan of her art for so many years. Her minimalist aesthetic, her profound design sensibility, and the soulfulness and vulnerability that she allows into her works that connect with me so deeply.
I'm thrilled to be the owner of two of her original art pieces. You can see one of them here and part of the other here as well. I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them. Can't wait to hang them.
And guess what?
