Applying encausting to photographs

Encaustic is a paint composed of beeswax, damar resin and pigments. The term "Encaustic" can be used to describe the material and the act of using the medium itself. I apply encaustic paints to my photographs which are printed on different types of fine art papers. The encaustic adds depth, luminosity and color to the photographs giving them a textural three-dimensional quality.

An award-winning photographer/artist, Jennifer has for the last 15 years had her work exhibited throughout the United States and Europe.  Her work has also been featured in Black & White Magazine and covered in many publications, including The New York Times.
"I'm passionate about art.  While my work is an interpretation of my life and experiences, it is important to me that it affects others and enables them to explore, imagine and question," says Drucker.  Her new work combines photographs with encaustics—a method of applying wax paint to a photograph after it's printed to add a sculptural quality to the piece.
Born in New York City, she currently resides on Long Island with her husband and three children.  She received her MFA (Master of Fine Arts) from Long Island University.
In addition to her international exhibit experience, her work is part of the permanent collection of the Women's Museum of Art in Abruzzo, Italy.
