Emilija Pasagic Biography

Always unconventional she began by painting on silk, intensely detailed semi-abstract still lives and figures.

She then went on to explore a variety of media, most recently experimenting with the encaustic method. This is an ancient technique, blending bee's wax and oil paint which can then be applied to paper, board or canvas; careful layering and scratching is then used to add depth and character to the compositions. The delicacy of the images is offset by robust Mediterranean shades of crimson and ochre, bringing a contemporary feel to a traditional technique.

Emilija sometimes applies gold leaf to accentuate key elements within the composition.

She was born in the former Yugoslavia but emigrated to Canada where she now lives and works.

Her unique style has won her a dedicated following and she has exhibited her exquisite paintings across Canada and the USA.
