Alana Kapell is a Kingston Ontario area Artist who works in some of the traditional but also exotic areas of painting and craft. In the latter category she has done Encaustic paintings which she describes on her website as:
“Encaustic paintings are usually done with purified beeswax and pigment or oil paint.
The wax and pigment are heated and applied molten to an absorbent surface.“
As you can see along the left flank it also allows Alana the opportunity to do some mosaic work as well. The result is a styling that is hue and texture rich – a taste of Herculeneum Modern.
The above detail shows the lively styling opportunities available. Alana also does rug hooking works with a whole series featuring nautical knots along with the fish that might be ensnared by such knot makers. You can find a selection of here works at The Gallery Raymond in Kingston Ontario. You can also contact Alana by email directly.
