Heidi Mayfield is a mixed media artist. She is always exploring new mediums and new ways to use and apply them. She currently uses encaustic wax as her main medium. In her early artistic years, she was seriously devoted to the art of Batik and wax resist. She combines the use of oil paints, oil sticks, acrylic, charcoal, pastel, wire and whatever else that lands in her path into her art. She would best describe herself as a process artist, meaning she is most inspired with the process of creating rather than the end result. She paints in the manner of acting and responding, often with only a vague minimal idea of her artistic destination. And to Heidi, that is what her art is about...the journey.
