Bridget Benton loves making stuff, and helping other people make stuff! She has been a working artist and teacher for over 20 years.
Bridget has always been drawn to mediums that support working intuitively and building layers - printmaking, photography and collage, fiber, and assemblage. In 2006, she began incorporating encaustic into her work, and found her “perfect medium.” She comes to encaustic with a collage sensibility, combining encaustic with nature print, her original photography, and joyful mark-making.
Her work has appeared in Wax Fusion, Mixed Media Art Magazine, Professional Artist Magazine, and in galleries from coast to coast. She has taught for Art Unraveled, The Nature Printing Society, and the Painting with Fire online encaustic masterclass.
Bridget’s passion as a teacher is helping people discover and develop their own creative voice. Her workshops focus on techniques and processes that facilitate self-discovery and creative exploration. Her workshop-in-a-book, The Creative Conversation: ArtMaking as Playful Prayer, is a guide to creating flow in your creative work and building intuitive artmaking skills. In 2012, the book was awarded a Nautilus Book Award Gold Medal as the best book of the year on Creative Process. Bridget is currently the lead encaustic instructor at 310 Art in the historic River Arts District in Asheville, NC.
