Inspired by the inherent beauty of the natural world, Alanna is drawn to the extraordinary in the ordinary. Working with the encaustic medium and incorporating mixed media, she captures feeling and emotion on canvas, reflected in luminous layers and enticing textures. Finding the medium both exciting and versatile to work with, Alanna uses various elements of interest; collage, transfer, photographs, drawings and written material. Oil paints, dry pigments and oils sticks are used to create the desired colour palette of choice. From here… molten layers of pigmented wax are fused onto a substrate, rendering a luscious depth and transparent luminosity….speaking to both the visceral and tactile senses.
