Eileen Bochsler -encaustic painting
I’m an abstract artist whose work is inspired by nature; not just the beauty I experience visually, but the serenity, wildness, and ferocity I experience emotionally. Each one of my pieces is a unique expression of that experience. The tools I use and media I include in my paintings are those that allow me to express what I experience visually and emotionally. I paint abstractly using encaustic paint and variety of media. I choose to paint in abstraction because it allows me to more fully translate, into my paintings, the feelings and emotions that I experience in my world. My process is very intuitive; letting my heart and the paints guide my decisions. The process of painting intuitively also teaches me to be present and not be tied to an expectation or outcome; challenging me and pushing me to grow as an artist. I have always found myself awestruck by the world around me— the way the sunlight is filtered through the trees, the changing colors of a sunset and the moodiness of the stormy sky. It’s these feelings and emotions that I convey in my work. Since I live in the Pacific Northwest, I am afforded the opportunity to experience this beauty on a daily basis. My studio overlooks the gardens in my backyard so I am never too far from inspiration.
