BEAUTY: Art--Alicia Tormey

Artist Alicia Tormey uses encaustic wax with various other mediums (paint, ink, shellac) to produce near-abstract botanicals.

But what really catches my attention is how she has translated her two dimensional paintings into three dimensional objects using the same materials. These "Specimens" as she calls them look like delicate, prehistoric water plants or mold and glorious colors. I also love how they are pinned, as though they are specimens in a Victorian botanical vitrine.
