Lynn Sweed is a clairvoyant medium from Southampton in the UK whose divination tool is encaustic painting. Diane revisits her interview with Lynn as she shares her life as a spiritual medium with over 20 years experience.
Lynn Sweed from Southampton UK remembers as a young child realising that there was something beyond death and had to find it out. The friend that walked alongside her that no one else could see was a magnificent white horse. He has since been back to her during meditations and spiritual moments.
Lynn has worked for spirit in various and numerous locations such as Churches, Clairvoyant demonstrations, MBS/Psychic Fayres. As well as private readings and also “rescue work” ie troubled houses. " I am well aware that if you walk and work in the light the opposite is also present. It is important for me to stand in my own truth and that road can be painful."
About three to five years ago her spiritual work started to take a new direction causing her to leave most of the old way behind, be free of encumbrances and work only for spirit. It has not been an easy journey. Lynn has always loved to paint, her new direction came when she was given a gift of an Encaustic Art kit. This is using coloured waxes and an iron.
There are different and numerous ways to connect with spirit. Now Lynn is free of restrictions she uses colour, this can be by coloured ribbons and through the Encaustic artwork which can be done for the individual.

Join artist and marketing expert Leslie Saeta as she highlights way to sell your art. Leslie is joined by June co-host Dottie Leatherwood. Today's show features an interview with artist Curt Butler. Curt’s work is a mixture of oil paint and encaustic painting techniques. Join us today as we explore the encaustic technique of painting.
Our guest host Diane Kelly of DCKellyStudio.com will help us explore Encaustic Painting and the many methods that artists use with this very flexable medium.
Encaustic paint is made from beeswax, pigment, damar resin and occasionally other additions to harden or crackle the paint., like carnauba wax. Encaustic paint is used hot, and is kept so on a heated palette, and fused with heat, either in the form of a heat gun, blow torch, or by exposure to brilliant sun during a warm summer.
The name encaustic comes from the Greek 'enkaustikos', meaning to burn in. All layers of wax and collage need to be fused after each application of new wax. The surface can be made rough, you may collage items into it, the paint can even be cast into sculpture. It can be made as shiny as glass, and buffed to brilliance. It can look very different, like an oil painting or even like a coarse plaster wall, depending on how it is used.

We all have busy lives and there never seems to be enough time to use the water closet practically, but finding a new skill, talent, hobby, or interest may just save your life some day.
A big percentage of retirees without established hobbies or interests die sooner than those who already have established activities. These activities need to be ones specifically done for themselves. In other words it needs to be something that is not necessarily dependent on others, such as babysitting your grandchildren.
Elyse Martin is an educator and artist. She creates large scale abstract works as well as haunting encaustic paintings. Julia Hamilton works in bones--using skulls to make beautiful pieces in a variety of colors, often metalic.
Martin paints both abstracts and encaustic works. She is based in the Chicago area. She teaches art at Jordan Community School in the city. Martin’s work has appeared in numerous juried art exhibits and she has won local and national art competitions. Hamilton, in addition to being an artist, is a talented make-up artist. Her work with making skulls and antlers in to art was part of the inspiration to do this show. Her work is beautiful and decorative. She is also owner of Pretty Windy City, a mobile artistry team working in make-up.They do airbrush make-up for weddings and more. Make-up as artists remind me of what grafitti artists were a few years back. Not considered even a starting point for fine art. But it is.

Now Trish has taken her love of teaching and (her word) ‘waxiness’ across the pond to Australia. I wanted to talk with her today to see how she came to the decision to take such a big leap of faith.
Daniella Woolf brings a “textile sensibility” to the ancient medium of encaustic, merging these two disciplines and using a limited choice of materials to create a newly formed language. Her art background includes fiber, collage, jewelry and metalsmithing.
A 2008 Rydell Visual Arts Fellow, Daniella’s encaustic work has been exhibited at the Cleveland Museum of Art, Pittsburg Center for the Arts and internationally at the British Craft Centre, London. She also has an extensive resume as a sculptural textile artist.
Daniella teaches popular encaustic workshops and writes the blog, Encausticopolis, about all things wax.
She has authored 2 books, Encaustic with a Textile Sensibility (2010) and The Encaustic Studio, a wax workshop in mixed-media art, out just this year. And there’s a DVD included with the book. What more can you want except Daniella in person? Well I’ve got here today, so let’s get started….

Tobi Indyke is owner and head artist at Periwinkle Skies, LLC. Tobi has transformed residential and commercial spaces with her artistry. She offers several solutions for each project formulated with sensitivity to the needs of the client and the planet. Her repertoire includes a host of artistic solutions: Venetian plaster, glazing, faux bois, inlay, gold leaf, fresco, encaustic, painted furniture, stencils, and murals. A return to ancient techniques using natural materials is particularly important to Tobi. Her desire to use authentic mediums was prompted by industry-wide concerns regarding a variety of health problems caused by long-term exposure to commercially made petro-chemical paints and solvents. This has been her inspiration for working with sustainable plasters, waxes, paints and colorants to create each Venetian plaster, faux finish, and decorative painting. Tobi received a bachelor’s degree in fine art at RIT. She is a seasoned decorative artist with years of experience as an art director. Her lifelong pursuit of stretching techniques and materials to their limits has taken her finishes to new heights. You are welcome to visit Tobi’s blog for articles about LEED green updates, reviews on the latest finishing products, natural finishes, art events and social action.
Bridgette Guerzon-Mills is drawn to the inherent beauty and spirit of the natural world, and her artwork is a personal dialogue that reaches into the stillness of that spirit. Through both imagery and medium, Bridgette creates organic pieces that speak to the cycles of life, growth and decay, memory and the passage of time.
Her mixed media paintings incorporate moments captured by photographs with the richness of paint, creating a bridge between two worlds – the real and the reconstructed. By laying down layers of paint and pieces of photo transfers, papers or fibers she creates depth in both form and meaning. The canvas becomes a multilayered surface that speaks to both the visual and tactile senses. This integration of diverse layers creates an intimate connection that invites exploration.
It is this insight and meaning and how where it comes from that we will discuss.
