encaustic artDebra Ramsay creates beautiful works of art with encaustic and eggshells. That fascinating texture that you see in the above work, “Yellow and Black Balance”, is crushed eggshells . Debra Ramsay  describes the process in her artist’s statement: “When my process involves applying eggshells to the painting panel it is based on a centuries old technique. In choosing the shapes and sizes of the fragments of shell and ascribing the areas between them, I engage in deliberate mark making. I apply pigmented wax in multiple layers, using a variety of tools, creating subtleties of color and textures.”
