Kohlene Hendrickson is a native Californian, whom moved to Switzerland in 2000 where she has found "home" in the enchanted medieval village of Romainmôtier.  She studied Fine Arts at the Otis Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles. She worked for 12 years as an illustrator and art director, then returned to fine arts by studying fresco with Frederico Vigil, lineage of Diego Rivera. Passionate about fresco, she went to Italy where she discovered encaustic painting, another ancient technique using natural materials and has continued to experiment with encaustic. Her search for a medium that could translate transparent layering of colors and rich mass material finally evolved into her unique multi-media technique, combining the materials of beeswax, resin, pigments and gum arabic. Her artwork is luminous and expressive abstract figuration, exploring dimensionality, the human and cosmic of EROS. 
She has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in the USA and in Europe (France, Italy, Switzerland and Austria). She’s currently represented by Galerie Sonia Monti in Paris and was in permanence with Plexus Art Gallery in Switzerland for many years.
