From the 2012 Collection
I have been working with encaustic for over four years and the more I explore this medium the more I fall in love with it. My latest work in encaustic is made up by 12 tiles each measures 15 x 15 cm

The tile base is white MDF over which I have applied many layers of a clear medium (beeswax and dammar resin) I then ether draw the composition or make separate shapes in wax with the help of pastry cutters such as the butterflies. In the next stage I then continue to add found objects with pigmented wax to add colour.
It is time-consuming work and yet very pleasurable. Whilst larger work is possible, the smaller format of the tiles are more affordable and lend themselves to telling a story in a series or making a collection with ongoing various themes.
Each tile is priced between £25 and £35 pounds depending on the work required; please feel free to ask for more details or specifics and use the contact form below.
