Dee Levang is an abstract artist working in encaustic, oil and cold wax, and fiber. She studied graphic design at California Institute of the Arts, and has been teaching encaustic and fiber classes and workshops since 2015. She often creates her paintings using an intuitive process, not having a solid plan or a desired design intent before beginning a piece. Instead, she relies on play, exploration, and discovery, as each piece begins to take on a life of its own. Her encaustic work often includes embedded fibers like cotton, rayon, wool, and silk.
