Christine Towner is an abstract expressionist who uses an ancient medium called encaustic wax. It is a blend of beeswax, damar varnish and oil paint pigment. It was revived in the 1960’s by Jasper Johns and is archival for any permanent collection. Christine has fine art education from both Kendall and Hope Colleges. She has attended numerous advanced courses from The Oxbow School of Chicago, National Encaustic experts, Joanne Materra, Paula Roland and the International Encaustic Association. She has a permanent collection encaustic monotype in the Encaustic Art Museum in Santa Fe, NM and has exhibited all over the US, 12 different cities in Michigan, Santa Fe, NM, Tucson, AZ, and Chicago. This will be her 10th time in ArtPrize. See christinetowner.com for further background and portfolio.
