The transformative process of encasing, painting, baking, embedding, and collaging elements with this ancient medium is their passion. Each artist interprets using wax with individualized technical expression, exposing viewers to new and uniquely captivating art forms.  Members include Kathleen Anderson, David Evans, Nancy Hacskaylo, Marty Ittner, Katie Dell Kaufman and Kevin Milstead.
