I am an encaustic artist living in Bala, Wales in the UK and I have been working with beeswax for 11 years. I begin a piece by setting down layers of pure beeswax and damar resin. I create texture and a weave of wax upon which I can express the narrative of the work I am producing. I consciously choose colours, tools and innovative techniques according to the image or impression I wish to portray. A piece of work is done when I have interwoven the wax with vivid colours characterised with emotion. When my work is going well, I am filled with a sense of profound peace and I lose all sense of time. My current work is about texture and colour.
This is truly beautiful. I’m really amazed to think how people can see in texture like this when here I am struggling to use colours to paint my walls. I might not have much artistic talent, but I thank God there are others out there like you who do and are able to capture the beauty of this world!
