Join us in welcoming new Associate Member Maxine Mattson to the Puget Sound Group!
Over thirty years of my life have been dedicated to painting and experimenting with art. Day dreams, night dreams and all of the spare time I have is spent indulging in this passion. I therefore consider myself a full time artist, even though I have worked a full time job and raised two children.
Trying various mediums, mixing them, layering, adding and scrubbing off has been my technique. Know as an intuitive painter, my inspiration is inspired by many travels, intrest in nature and just experiencing life. I do my best work when I stop trying to make art and just let it happen.
Encaustic painting has captivated my interest as it is very challenging and forgiving. I love the sensual feeling it evokes. I am always learning new ways to master this medium.
