Welcome!

Daphne Holland is a Texas artist who currently lives in Austin. She studied art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY and textile design at California College of Arts & Crafts in Oakland, CA. Graduating with a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas in Austin, she has been painting with encaustic medium since 2007. Her paintings use this ancient technique in a modern way by layering beeswax/pigment and fusing together with a heat gun and torch.

I’m excited to open my encaustic studio to students interested in learning about this exciting medium.  The goal  of the play dates is for students to develop their own textures and signature techniques.  Studio visits by appointment.
