Marieke Dench has a Fine Arts Degree from The Victorian College of the Arts (VCA), and 1st Class Honours Degree in Fine Arts from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (R.M.I.T) and a Diploma in Education from The University of Melbourne (Receiving the Award for Practical Teacher for the Year).

Dench has successfully maintained a recognised arts practice in her own right exhibiting nationally and internationally for almost 20 years.

The breadth of her practice is vast and includes advanced encaustic wax painting, watercolour and acrylic painting, printmaking and paper sculpture but to name a few.

Dench’s knowledge in such a wide array of mediums means she brings to her encaustic workshops and demonstrations multiple avenues that encaustic can be used depending on one’s background and interests.
