Christine Sajecki is an independent artist practicing in Baltimore, Maryland. She mostly works in encaustic, a malleable and sculptural paint made of beeswax, pigment, damar resin, and other materials harvested from her environment. She works the surfaces with brushes, torches, gouges and blades. Sajecki brings this excavation and accretion of surface to other media and drawings through her physical process.
She exhibits her paintings nationally and internationally, and her work appears in print in albums, periodicals, and books of poetry and fiction. She has been a guest lecturer, teacher, or resident artist at institutions and community centers nationally and internationally, including the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore and FundAHrte in Panama City, Panama.
While living in Savannah, Georgia, she cofounded the Flannery O’Connor Annual Birthday Parade, and served on the Board of Directors and as President of the Flannery O’Connor Childhood Home Foundation for three years. She was married to an architect for a decade or so, and thus, understands nearly everything.
