Joan Stuart Ross

Seattle-based artist Joan Stuart Ross creates two-dimensional artworks that combine encaustic (made using melted wax), painting, printmaking, and collage techniques. Experimenting with process and repetition, Ross creates layered visual narratives that explore natural forms and personal symbols.
