About the Label Art:
2018 ARTIST SERIES #27, “Lush”, Encaustic 1’ x 1’, Jodie Stejer, Sandpoint, ID. Jodie Stejer in an Encaustic artist: applying a fired torch to fuse together beeswax, resin, pigments and shellac to create abstract paintings inspired by the emotions within her as well as the world around her. Jodie moved from her hometown of Corvallis, Oregon to play volleyball and attend Whitworth University. After college she married her husband John, had two kids and worked as an Interior Designer for over 20 years. Oil and acrylic painting had always been a hobby, but upon becoming an “empty nester” Jodie knew she wanted to pursue Encaustic art full time. She moved into a studio in downtown Sandpoint, Idaho. Layer by layer, letting the aesthetics take place, she allows the stories of her world to reveal themselves. It’s the most vulnerable way for Jodie to communicate to her audience. Encaustic painting is a passion which Jodie is continually engaged in and captivated by. She’s deeply fascinated with the movement of wax, the process of constantly developing her encaustic skills and learning from the artist community.
