Artist Biography

I am a self taught encaustic artist approaching my art intuitively without any plan or scheme. Each new piece tells me where it needs to go as the wax melts and contracts. I fell in love with the ancient form of Encaustics using beeswax and damar resin in 2013, as my hobby of candle making took me to a place I’d never been before. Natural elements enable my ideas and creativity to blossom and rise from what was once long dormant.I have found my creative spirit in what is sometimes called a Lost Art.
