Encaustic, oil, and acrylic
In Pamela Taylor’s most current work of encaustic, oil, and gold-leaf portraits, Taylor aims to raise the viewer’s consciousness about the preciousness of life, the Divine Spirit within, and the magnificence that is every woman. Taylor is inspired by the Egyptian Mummy portraits (3,400 years old and the oldest, largest body of encaustic work found to date), her 2016 trip to Russia, the religious icons in the beautiful churches throughout Russia, and her faith. Taylor is a San Antonio visual artist influenced by her 14 years as Co-Founder/CEO at Dress for Success San Antonio, as well her personal experience of domestic violence, childhood sexual abuse, working with inmates at Bexar County Jail, client stories and our current social/political climate. Taylor works in a variety of mediums, including acrylic, watercolor, ink, oil, encaustic (molten beeswax, demar resin), graphite, charcoal, and photography.
