July 23rd - 24th

Michael Billie
Mixed Media

Michael will be demonstrating resin and mixed media art, with work available for purchase.  


Michael wrote, "I am a Navajo encaustic artist living and teaching in Farmington, NM. Native culture and Native art has always evolved with the times. My work is contemporary with references to what’s important in Native culture. The dragonflies represent how long native culture has been around and evolved over time on Mother Earth." 


Encaustic (to burn in) is a fascinating and versatile genre. It refers to use of beeswax as a constituent of a painting process involving melting of the wax at some stage. Encaustic can be a slow, difficult technique, but the paint can be built up in relief, and the wax gives a rich optical effect to the pigment.
