Jann Visser was born in Zimbabwe where she studied art. She started painting in oils and acrylics, selling her works at art exhibitions. After working for the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation, she moved to South Africa and joined M-Net television production where she worked for ten years. Jann was introduced to encaustic art in 1996 and fell in love with the fact that it is so 'instant'. Soon, what started as a hobby became a passion, and she started teaching others this amazing art form. By writing this book, Jann hopes to help other people discover the beauty of encaustic art. She has written numerous articles for craft magazines and regularly gives demonstrations for art societies and groups. Jann lives in Cape Town with her husband and two children.
Encaustic art isn't new, but there's a fresh feeling to this guide that should bring it many converts. Jann Visser starts from the very beginning, introducing materials, equipment and techniques and showing that relatively little investment is required at this stage. The remainder - the bulk, in fact - of the book is devoted to a series of projects which demonstrate abstracts, landscapes and decorative work as well as the production of celebration cards and the use of textures and embellishments. The results that she produces show that painting with wax is far from being just a novelty act and can produce subtle and beautiful results.-Artbookreview.net I love this book by Jann Visser. It's full of bright colours. This is an ecletic book which sits beautifully on the border between art and craft. With over 50 projects, full instructions and guides to the equipment you will need it's an excellent introduction to encaustic art. There's a rainbow of inspiration here which will inspire you to get melting!-Sewingisforgirls.blogspot.com
