I'm Elske de Groot, an artist and creator with roots in Canada, the US, the Netherlands and France.
My initial journey into the art world began in Toronto's commercial
photography sector, where I wore the dual hats of photographer and
educator. Though rewarding, I found myself increasingly drawn to a more
tactile and physical form of artistic expression.
I have a deep interest in art that carries clear messaging and
unfiltered emotion. My work often captures fleeting moments or
overlooked details from daily life, serving as visual reminders of the
extraordinary within the ordinary.
My specialty lies in the blend of encaustic art and photography, a
medium that allows me to infuse layers of imagery into beeswax. This ever-evolving practice keeps me
on my toes, forever pushing the boundaries of what's possible within the
realm of encaustics.
My work hangs in public and private collections throughout Canada and the US.
Beyond my studio practice, I also lead art retreats in captivating
settings in France. These retreats serve as a
platform for other artists to dig deep, explore new techniques, and
ultimately enrich their own creative journeys.
Thank you for taking a moment to get acquainted with me and my artistic
approach. I look forward to sharing more of my work and creative
discoveries with you in the near future.
