Encaustics on the Rock

The process of encaustic on wood panel has taken me outside of my comfort zone into a world of mark making, sculpture and spontaneity of approach. Layers of coloured wax can be scraped and manipulated to produce some amazing results. I'm still heavily inspired by my physical environment but now I'm delving into a more imaginative interpretation of layered earth and seascapes - like an archeological dig, unearthing treasurers unique and tenuous.
