Linda Virio

Linda works in a variety of media including encaustic watercolour, watercolour batik, collage and inks, often combining them. Currently she is most captivated by the tactile nature of beeswax. Linda exploits its wonderful properties through fusing, scraping, scratching and collaging; often using wax with photography, inks, oil pigments, watercolour and rice paper.

Inspired by travel and, more often, Linda’s own backyard, her paintings connect her to the world at her doorstep. Exploring and creating are what motivates her. Linda loves experimenting with new techniques. Encaustic is an ancient medium that uses beeswax mixed with paint and damar resin to create a luscious, versatile surface. It is a spontaneous, translucent medium that is gaining in popularity as more and more people fall in love with it.
