The Artfull DodgeR

Artist, Kate Colclaser, works mainly on abstract encaustic pieces influenced by the natural world and the amazing, often missed, elements found there. Works include inks, pastels, watercolor, original photographs and found objects. Then it is all layered and incorporated in wax.

There is always something interesting and inspirational to photograph or collect whether it is on a hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains or a trek across country or a walk through a local park. The work starts with a base layer of wax and the germ of an idea and then takes on a life of its own as it progresses.

Please see the gallery or check out the Artfull DodgeR on facebook.

My work is currently available at the Asheville Gallery of Art in downtown Asheville and at Trackside Studios in Asheville’s River Arts District or contact me directly at or 828-785-2546.
