"I've been an artist all my live, but only discovered encaustics, now a passion, some six years ago after moving to Mountain View, Arkansas."
She has put away her previous mediums and has now devoted her entire studio to perhaps the oldest known art form, the ancient art of the Egyptians of the Fayum Valley. Her expertise in the medium sometimes references recognizable forms, sometimes not, but always there is the depth, brilliancy and translucency that can only be achieved with flame and molten bee's wax.
La'Nelle is a member of International Encaustic Artists, and the Encaustic Art Institute in Cerritos, New Mexico.
