Tobia Makover is a fine art photographer and mixed media artist whose work creates intrigue through timeless and emotive imagery. Each piece starts with a photograph, the soul of her work. Tobia then encompasses many layers of medium that she paints, carves, torches and then preserves in wax and resin through an encaustic process that dates back to the 1st Century, BCE.

In all bodies of work and in life, Tobia contemplates the physicality of our existence. She questions the importance of our being and the impact of our time here while examining the tension between holding on and the desire to let go.

Internationally acclaimed, Tobia has exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London, Les Ateliers de L’Image in St. Remy, France, PH-Neutro in Verona, Italy, the Griffin Museum in Boston, AIPAD in New York, and SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah. 


In this workshop students will learn about the development of the artist work and explore Tobia’s techniques from beginning to end while gaining hands on experience incorporating encaustic with their own photography.  Tobia will demonstrate techniques and provide advice as students have a chance to experiment with a variety of prepared surfaces. Each student will create their own personalized 6”x6” photographic work based following Tobia process.
