Summer Hill

My artwork utilises both wax encaustic and oil paint, which allows me to make marks and to texturise into the warm wax surface to simulate the feel of landscape. Working with the wax combines both the techniques of painting and printmaking, which suits me well having had a career in both areas. Because of the serendipity of the technique, no two works can be replicated, so it is always exciting to arrive at the finished result which has not been controlled or premeditated.
