Profile

Crea M McKeen, Painter

Modern Encaustic Painting; beeswax, tree resin and oil paint.
Painting allows me to physically process my life journey. When I'm not painting, I can get lost in my head. This warm, tactile wax acts as a medium that connects my hands to my subconscious. Painting is a relief for me. It allows me to free myself from the confines of identity. My paintings just emerge. I find that by interpreting the messages that they bring, I come closer to letting go and finding my humility as a human being.
