Meet Artist Barbara Wells




O-087 Posey 1 by Barbara Wells encaustic 3.5x8 $150

Retired from healthcare and education, and having lived in Amador County for 50 years, I have a deep appreciation for the beauty and caring community of our foothill communities. I strive to represent that appreciation in my art.

As a mixed media artist, I am fascinated by texture, color and flow. When I paint, every painting is an experiment, often with surprising outcomes.  Encaustics allow me to push the limits of my artistic expression with strong bold colors and forms. My encaustic journey, supported by luminous waxes, inks and mixed medium products, offers me an endless creative license, that hopefully will evoke an emotional response from the onlooker while enjoying the beauty of the piece.
