I am Jennifer Keresztes, a multi-disciplinary artist working in a variety of media with an emphasis on using encaustic paint (pigmented wax) in both a painted and printed way. Using a heated palette, I melt pigmented wax to create images which I then print onto paper. Sometimes I enhance these images with other media or collage them creating layers and another dimension to my mixed media compositions which often have a soothing color palette inspired by the natural world. Many thanks for visiting. Enjoy!
It's an honor to be recommended and interviewed for an article about my story and art in VoyageLA's Thought-Provokers series Valley edition. Their online platform features and supports local artists and creatives throughout the large scale Los Angeles arts community.

A big THANK YOU to everyone that visited the Currents exhibition of my latest encaustic and mixed media artwork. The opening reception was such a fun night! I really enjoyed meeting everyone then as well as at other times during the run of the show. I truly appreciate everyone's interest, kindness and support.
* From the proceeds of my art, I made a donation to Sierra Club California's Wildfire Relief, an emergency fund where 100% of funds go directly to locally led fire relief and recovery efforts after the recent devastating wildfires in California. A special thanks to those that made that contribution possible.
