Candace Law is an encaustic mixed-media artist. Much of her current work blends an interest in the decayed industrial age and man-made objects with the abstract—as expressed through drawing, found objects, mixed media and encaustic.
Candace has exhibited in several solo shows, as well as numerous regional and national exhibitions—both invitational and juried competitions. She works full-time from her studio in Hazel Park (MI).
