“Paint the Town”
Angels Forever – Windows of Light meet, view and purchase the art of Andrea Salchert
“I am a psychic artist from Stevens Point, Wisconsin. I am really passionate about combining personal development with artistic pursuits. I believe, creativity is the driving force for change that guides everything to grow and evolve.
My primary focus is working in the encaustic medium. I combine beeswax, damar resin, and various pigments to paint predominantly on wood panels. Encaustic paint must be warm to be worked, so I use a variety of irons, torches, and other heated tools. The advantage of working with wax is the visual depth that can be created by painting layer upon layer of translucent medium. When pressure is applied, through scraping and polishing, the medium is left more transparent. It takes effort and finesse to achieve the surface texture that suits me. My method certainly is a dance of sorts between development and destruction-both creative and personal.”
