Sylvia Torres Fine Art

Southern Callifornia

I am a full time contemporary artist working in the ancient medium of Encaustic. This hot pigmented beeswax & resin paint originated with the Greeks over 2000 years ago. I found my own intuitive visual language in this medium, and learned how to get out of my own way, silencing the inner critic.
All this, and the beautiful scent of beeswax wafting through the air.
