Encaustic Wax Splash 1

Splash Series No 1-encaustic on wooden panel. SOLD

Please feel free to browse around at your leisure. There are several galleries here for you to enjoy. To enter use the links on the menu available on the left.

Within the Artwork Galleries you will find traditional encaustic paintings based on techniques pioneered by the ancient Eyptians and developed by modern artists such as Jasper Johns. In addition you can also see works in watercolour and acrylics.

The Photography galleries include Water (Abstracting Aqua) and Lifeforms (Flora and Fauna) depict the patterns of nature. Landscape(Rural Reflections) and Citylife (Urban Visions) capture images from our rural and urban environment.

I work across several media, using those I feel that will best depict the subject. My favourite medium is encaustic wax, however I do not use the iron on glossy card as many artists here in the UK do. For various reasons I use brushes, a heated palette and a heatgun or even a small blowtorch. Further information can be found on my blog.

I also produce work in photography, pastels, inks, graphite, watercolours and acrylics. Art should not be constrained by a particular technique but  enhanced by it. One subject can be interpreted in a myriad of ways-each as valid and unique as the other. Often I will combine several media to give each piece of work its unique finish. Each technique can feed into another. Working in mixed media is always exciting because the results can be so unpredictable.
