Collection: Shari Lyon

Shari Lyon paints with beeswax! Encaustic art is one of the oldest forms of art. Most people are not familiar with the word encaustic. It's painting with a specific mixture of beeswax and damar resin. Painting with hot, melted wax, Shari also incorporates the use of oil paints, pan pastels, oil sticks, and drawings. She loves the smell of the melted beeswax that fills her studio!


The process requires Shari to have both patience and spontaneity. It's a rare marriage of being in control and completely losing control. It's labor-intensive, with many steps involved. What Shari loves most about encaustic is that the outcome is a dreamy, ethereal image with texture and appeal, unlike any other art form. She wishes everyone could see encaustic works in person to really appreciate all they have to offer. Photos rarely do them justice.

Shari is drawn to the imagery and symbolism of trees. She loves that people generally have a universal response and connection to the different meaning that trees can have to different people and cultures.

She also loves to work with abstract landscapes. She prefers to not replicate an exact place or time but to create an invitation to a place where the viewer can create the narrative and emotion for themselves. She feels that the encaustic process lends itself to very moody, emotional landscapes. Perfect for dreaming of those long-off places you wish to explore!
