Nadia Alenov is an encaustic photographer from St. Paul, Minnesota. She graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2010. Her first exposure to encaustics was while living in Russia – the fascination was both immediate and enduring. Nadia has been a photographic artist for over 23 years and began incorporating encaustics into her work in 2006. Her work has been included in several galleries both locally and nationally as well as many private collections.

Painting over my photographs with wax medium brings me deep into an image. Melting down, dry brushing and carving allows me to examine the beauty and emotion of the land, its seasons and atmospheres, while enhancing the textural properties of the terrain. Encaustics helps seal in the intrinsic qualities of an image and elevates the piece to a state of timelessness.
