For some years I have dabbled in various art forms… drawing, water colours, acrylics but could never feel comfortable at all. Until I came across the word 'encaustic' and my curiousity got the better of me! Not having a clue what it was I decided to explore and hence began my exciting journey into encaustics. Now, there is no stopping me as I teach myself the different techniques and evolve my very own style of painting.
The medium allows the imagination to flow unhindered. When I start a painting I never really know what direction I will be following. Sometimes, totally abstract and sometimes something more conventional. My favourite subject has always been water, from being a Pisces maybe? Certainly, many of my paintings involve underground lakes, the sea and caves. Some will be mysterious, some dynamic or even peaceful but always exciting!…
