Erin Keane is an artist working with photography, encaustic beeswax, and bookbinding. In photography, she explores elasticity of light, and combines photography transfer with encaustic beeswax to create soft imagery with a luminous glow. In bookbinding, she explores structural form and complex bindings, and designs encaustic journals to honor books as an art form.
Erin lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, and works daily at her home studio near Pisgah National Forest. She holds a Master of Art Education and teaches workshops regionally and nationally. She spends her leisure time hiking, canoeing, camping, creek stomping, star gazing, and porch sitting. Her adventures in the mountains, lakes, and rivers become embedded personally into her imagery.
Erin is represented by 310 ART, The Gallery at Flat Rock, Penland Gallery, The Bascom, and Southern Highland Craft Guild.
She teaches classes at 310 ART, Penland School of Craft, Arrowmont School of Arts & Craft, John C Campbell Folk School, Lesley Riley Red Thread, Kathryn Bevier ArtWorks/Enkaustikos, The Bascom, and Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch EncaustiCamp/OPENstudio.
