Encaustics with Christine Sajecki


Click image to expand

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.

Welcome to The Art of Everyone

In writing my book Everything Else, I realised everybody has their own “everything else”—the thoughts and stories, the experiences, the skills, the imagination, the dreams.

Left unexplored or unshared, they can leave a void, depriving our spirit of something beautiful and nourishing. Having learned that, I created the space here to manifest my own "everything else," and to help others share theirs.

The path here is lined with flowers, the walls are endless, the shelves inviting, the table is set, and there is room for adventure. Bring your own creations or just open your soul for a retreat. This is a space to breathe. Leave the conventional world behind and enjoy.

Thank you for being here.
