TOM FEHSENFELD||For the past 30 years, Tom has become an expert in the technique of encaustic painting, a method used in the Egyptian Fayum portraits (circa 0-300 A.D.) Tom uses pure beeswax, color, and Damar varnish (a tree resin) to build forms saturated in light. Tom’s study of art ranges from the symbols in Northwest Coast Native Art to the late pastels of Edgar Degas to the raw canvasses of the abstract expressionists.
Tom attended The New York Studio School, The University of Washington and received his B.A. from Evergreen State College in WA. He also attended The Putney School in VT for high school. Tom’s painting reflect the rural landscapes from the Baltimore County countryside where he grew up and also the Eastern Shore where his family had a farm.
