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.
