Art Demo with Kyle T Millar, encaustic Wax artist.
Kylie T Millar studied at UBC Okanagan and explored as many mediums as she could. The malleable and concrete qualities of wax have captured her imagination and has yet to lose it’s allure.
Kylie was born on the coast of British Columbia and since found her home in Pemberton B.C. As an encaustic artist, she has always gravitated back to the blues and greens that engulf this magical part of the world. Enticed by the universes many chemical reactions, she turned to a medium that includes them all. Encaustic Wax is a melt-able, mixable, and malleable medium that has been used for centuries and has recently found new life in the art world.
