Instructor bio
Honolulu artist Sandy Simonian has expertise in jewelry and fashion design.

While visiting the Venice Biennial, she was seduced by an encaustic painting she saw—the beautiful translucency, layering and textures of the medium of bee’s wax, resin and pigment spoke to her and sparked her desire to learn this medium. Sandy immersed herself in “everything encaustic,” learning advanced techniques in classes with prominent artists working in the medium. Sandy enjoys creating curious and mysterious surfaces with depth of line and color and is always exploring new possibilities. Sandy draws inspiration from anatomy, science and nature. She is influenced by her photographic images of her exotic travels to distant lands.
