Beth Markko awarded the Kirk Players Emergin Artist Award at the Mundelein Fine Arts Festival
Beth Markko has lived in McHenry County for 32 years. Art has always been a part of her life and has recently become her central focus. After discovering and admiring the works of other artists, Beth became interested in exploring the unique art form known as Encaustic. This process uses heat to fuse layers of beeswax to create smooth or textured pieces. She enjoys incorporating other mediums into her work; such as paper, oils or even found objects. She is thrilled to be able to share her work with others!
