Shary Bartlett is an artist and fine arts instructor living in Vancouver, Canada. Her mixed media body of work includes encaustic (molten beeswax), acrylic, fibre arts, sculptural assemblage and photography. She instructs fine arts workshops and retreats in Canada and internationally. Her work has been included in solo and group exhibitions in the US and Canada and is held in private and public collections in Canada and the US.
Shary's work is published in the books, Encaustic Art in the 21st Century and Encaustic Revelation. Her personally-curated encaustic wax pigments sets are made by Enkaustikos Paints.
“I’ve used a variety of Jacquard’s many products in my mixed media artwork over the years, including Encaustic Medium, Piñata Alcohol Inks, Lumiere paints, Printable Inkjet Fabric and Cyanotype sheets, Pearl Ex Powder and Dye-Na-Flow paints. My current body of work is inspired by the luminosity of encaustic combined with the vibrancy of Piñata Inks.”
