Contemporary Encaustic Wax Painting, Mixed Media & Sculpture
My source of inspiration comes from the natural world, organic formations, the sea, colour, line and texture. I incorporate graphite, pastels, rust, india ink, paper and fabric, within my pieces and prefer to work in tonal colours with a pallette inspired by the Jurassic coastline or from my travels to Australia and Iceland. Encaustic wax can be fluid, textured, solid, smoothed, sculpted, moulded, embedded and incised making it a versatile medium which is also challenging and physical. I usually use between 30/100 layers of wax for each painting before I start my creative process.
