Karl W. Kaiser


I began to develop my artistic interest with photography, then picked up the brush for acrylic painting and then encaustic, which has been my primary medium now for quite some time.  I am inspired by nature and often use my photography for inspiration.

Encaustic is hot wax painting, using heated beeswax, resin and colored pigments.  The encaustic medium brings a unique depth and texture to my subjects and I am constantly pushing its boundaries.

I am currently represented by Portland Rental Sales Gallery in Portland and by RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.  Visits to my studio are encouraged and welcome and can be made in advance by appointment.
