I first discovered Encaustic Wax Art in 2012, and it was love at first sight! I was absolutely entranced by this magical medium, and set out to learn as much about it as I possibly could. It touched me on a soul level like no other. On exhibiting my work, it seemed people were as entranced by this medium as I was, and so my teaching began. I've run workshops, demos, art talks and 1-1's to thousands of people over the years, from small art clubs, to The National Honey Show, and Living Crafts, helping complete beginners, who claim not to draw a straight line, through to professional artists wanting to expand their skills. Teenagers to grandparents. I am passionate about sharing this medium, which is a truly healing art form, I've seen it's therapeutic benefits time and time again, so, I'm on a mission to share it with as many people as I can, in a fun, friendly, and accessible way for all.
