  2. Just to confirm that I have been receiving many enquiries for encaustic wax workshops and also my photo-encaustic if you would like further information relating to these classes please feel free to contact me on 07714196584  

    I am inspired by the Jurassic coastline of Devon/Dorset where I live, I am also a keen traveller this year my work has been influenced by my recent trip to Iceland and later this year I will be travelling to Australia where I am sure I will be gathering inspiration for my next project.  I am a keen photographer and work from both sketch books, memory and images which I have collected from my journeys of exploration.
