 INSPIRATION


“I am fascinated by the experience of working on different surfaces.”

Over the years she has painted on papyrus, paper, wood veneer, perspex and now metal sheeting. Working with encaustic wax and oil pigment, on this surface is a tactile and poetic, expressive experience.

Labour intensive and difficult to master, the artist must relinquish some element of control with each stroke of the brush. The wax has a mind of it’s own, but this makes the medium even more exciting.

“One of the most captivating things about encaustic is the way that the thin layers of beeswax lend an atmospheric quality to the paintings. It’s the possibility that keeps me going. Not the guarantee. ”
