studiomargo Historical Monterey Map Series

I have created a map series. The images are courtesy of the California History Room of the Monterey Public Library. These maps let you explore Monterey in the 1800's with the oldest form of painting, encaustic. Although this is the oldest form of painting I am bringing a youthful and 21st century vision to the medium.

Each piece has a different historical map of Monterey. This technique of photo transfer and burnishing kept me on my toes as I researched and discussed the process with several encaustic painters how to obtain a clear transfer.

email if interested in seeing the work in person or purchasing.
