Bridget Guerzon Mills has inspired me to look into how I could incorporate Encaustics into Mixed Media works. She works with layers of textures and colour in paints, photo images, organic matter, stitch work and wax. She suggests that interests and passions are paramount for developing a personal style and voice, and to be authentic by never following someone else’s style. It is in the mistakes that we find our footing so just create, create, create and make heaps of mistakes. Her artwork is a personal dialogue and the themes stem from cycles of life, growth and decay, memories and the passage of time. Guerzon Mills creates paintings, visual journals and facilitates workshops where she teaches her mixed media craft and shares wisdom of how to discover ones own creative voice.
