I am an artist, writer and tutor. While I work across several media I prefer to work with encaustic wax. In this technique I apply layers of wax on a panel and fuse with paint strippers and blow torches. I first worked with this form of painting in 2001 and fell in love with the sensuality of the medium. I undertook several courses, both in the UK and most notably in the USA where this form of art is more established. Since then I have produced work for exhibitions and taught workshops in this wonderful artform. I love experimenting with this tactile medium and often experiment incorporating other media and different types of wax in my art.
