A new interpretation of the ancient arts of sculptural relief carving, painting and encaustic wax with a contemporary twist of adding ephemera objects in this intuitive mixed media technique.

Using low cost materials obtained at the hardware store and your own junk drawer, you will learn how to create a relief using easy to carve spackling. Then we add color and narrative through paint, and objects, finishing with a soft coat of encaustic wax.


CAT KAUFMAN is a mixed media artist in the SOFA Arts District of Santa Rosa, CA. A former teacher and nonprofit director, she has been a full time artist since 2007. A juried member of Sonoma County Art Trails and Art Basel Miami, Cat shows her work and teaches classes in her studio in Sonoma County, California.
