Kim Kobialko’s artwork reflects her three passions of beekeeping, photography, and encaustic painting. With sustainability as one of her key focuses, Kim works through the time consuming process from scratch; harvesting wax from her beehives, making encaustic medium and then painting with it in up-cycled or re-purposed substrates, such as an old wooden platter to create nature inspired compositions. Using heated beeswax mixed with a tree resin, adding coloured pigments and then pasting to a surface is an ancient technique from Egypt dating back to 100-300AD. Kim’s artwork is held in private collections throughout NZ, Australia and Canada and she is represented in galleries nationwide.
