I am a visual artists working in Encaustic & Mixed Media, using an ancient Greek technique I paint in multiple layers of wax using heat guns and blow torches, exploring and experiment with pigments, ink, charcoal, graphite & digital images.
I make my own wax medium from bees wax and damar resin which is heated and then brushed or poured onto birch wood panels, I am inspired by the natural world, organic formations, surface pattern & texture.

I run Encaustic Workshops through out the year from my home Studio based in East Devon, I have exhibited throughout the South West and South East including group Exhibitions at the Cork Street Gallery, London and OXO Gallery, London.

I will be exhibiting large abstract paintings including photo-encaustic during this years Devon Open Studios 2014, I will also be demonstrating encaustic painting techniques & offering free advice for beginners.
