An interview with Patricia Aaron
Recently an instructor mentioned you were her inspiration to become an encaustic artist. Who or what helped launch you into your career as an artist?
That goes back, very early. Nature was my very first teacher. We lived in Ohio with 500 acres of woods behind our house. I spent so much time observing; taking in sounds, smells, the colors of the seasons. The starkness of winter and the lushness of summer. I still go back there to rejuvenate in a way I can't do here. Those woods are like a long lost friend. You don't understand the impact when it's happening; it's not until late in life it all starts coming together.
