Encaustic Studio

Amie McCarron - Contemporary Artist

Drawing inspiration from nature, the universe and the beauty of our country, Amie McCarron is a full-time New Zealand Artist creating original paintings from her home studio located in Petone, Wellington.

Primarily self-taught, Amie has developed a unique style that has an earthy quality reflecting our environment. Preferring a natural palette of deep rich colours her work exudes warmth, often creating a sense of drama and romance.

Amie’s recent works have resulted from her discovery of encaustic painting; the very ancient and beautiful medium of pigment suspended in a beeswax and resin base.
