Artist Brenda Walker paints with encaustic medium, which involves adding pigments to heated beeswax and then applying that medium to a surface. Having been the co-founder/owner/operator of a cake decorating business for more than two decades in Calgary, Brenda loved working with beeswax because of its similarity to icing. The transition into painting was natural for her. She spent 5 years on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia and has recently moved back to Calgary.
Each of Brenda’s paintings consists of many layers of wax, which are fused, scraped and carved until the desired amount of texture and depth are achieved. Her representational style reflects a simplicity that allows the viewers’ own creative thoughts or memories to interact with the paintings.
