Spending most of his life in Tennessee, Charles Ivey has created art in just about every medium, from welding steel to taking photos. Ivey currently works in encaustic-a form fo painting that combines pigment with hot beeswax and natural resin. 


He has done recent work in acrylics and venetian plaster. Ivey created truly unique pieces through various techniques and rarely approaches his work with any idea of the outcome.  

He begins by applying layers of paint to the canvas or board, then "works" the surface by moving and removing aspects of the layers to reveal the final piece.  During this process, his primary focus in texture and the merging of colors.
