Welcome. I'm Andrea

I am a photo encaustic artist living in Miami, Florida. My work combines the encaustic technique of painting with images that I shoot in Everglades National Park, Big Cypress and Central Florida. Photo encaustics is a mixed media technique that involves combining layers of heated beeswax, pigments and photographs resulting in an ethereal and painterly effect. I have a selection of work for purchase and I accept commissions. Keep an eye out below for my encaustic workshops and photography classes given here in Miami, FL.

The Embedding Photographic Images into Encaustic Painting workshop is one of three photo encaustic workshops taught by Andrea Clement. In this workshop, student’s photographs will be printed onto archival tissue paper, then embedded into their own encaustic painting.
