Kana Clark (Melty Space Case) loves all things space, art and nature. Growing up around the world with an artist mother, she was exposed to various forms of art and expression, spanning many different cultures. She finds her most creative voice stems from the ever expanding universe and all of the wonders within it. From the tiniest quark to the vast ocean of space, inspiration is all around and within us.
In her epic creative quest, Kana journeyed through all the different lands of mediums, absorbing, experimenting and learning all along the way. When she found herself in the encaustic forest, she knew her search had ended and a new journey had begun.
Always the rebel, she preferred the freedom of being a self taught artist. Her true love is painting nebulas and planets in the encaustic style with beeswax, damar resin and pigments. On a typical day you will find her in the studio, working hard to create and express various thoughts, emotions and ideas.
"I like to think each encaustic piece has its own life story, every layer of wax building who it will become and what it wants to say or reveal. Each piece has its own life journey and is just like our own, often full of nicks, scrapes and scars. The layers in between the start and end are the most important parts, and yet those in between parts are often never seen."
