Willow Bader - September 18 - Encaustic Demo
Award winning artist, Willow Bader, was born in a log cabin in the woods near an Indian Reservation in northeastern Washington State. From an early age, she knew she wanted to be an artist and eventually went on to study at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. After art school, she returned to Washington State. "I missed the out-of–doors, the mountains, the ocean and fresh air."
After taking tango lessons, tango dancers became a favorite painting subject. "Tango dancing was a scary place to begin dancing, but I liked the romance, the complexity, the history and the beauty of it. Tango is deep. It remains an ongoing part of my life and art." She paints in encaustic medium. "It’s like tango-warm and fleshy and sensual-a very old medium. And I own it in the sense that I taught myself how to use it and developed my own techniques, tools and style."
Willow has won numerous awards and is represented by galleries in Palm Desert, CA, Houston, Texas, Philadelphia, PA and Tuczon, AZ.
