Michael Billie is a popular Native American mixed-media artist, working with encaustic. His other love is photography. "Most of the colored wax that I work with I make myself. I also incorporate sandpainting sand, beads and horse hairs into my work. These are materials that are used in ceremonies and other traditional events. I work with both a heat gun and a blowtorch depending on the effect that I’m looking for." His work is on display at The Encaustic Art Institute in Santa Fe and Weyrich Gallery in Albuquerque.
