Painter and Encaustic Artist
My main preoccupation as an artist is with abstraction and the exploration of mixed media materials. I enjoy variety, and use acrylics, collage, inks, watercolour and pastel. My working method is essentially free and intuitive, going with the flow of the work as it evolves.
I have added encaustic to my range of media, and find this a most enjoyable and fascinating technique which suits my natural inclination for textural elements. Its organic qualities also lend themselves to references and inspiration from the surrounding landscape and wildlife, which underpin everything I do in my art.
