Welcome to my website.  The art of encaustic painting using hot coloured waxes was developed some five thousand years ago and many of the techniques had fallen into disuse.


However, it has been revived as a painting medium in recent times and I wish to continue this, develop it and help incorporate it into contemporary art. I manipulate the hot wax in a similar way to that in which a sculptor might shape clay. Therefore, I think of this as ‘sculptural painting’.


For many years I have experimented with the media of paint and sculpture in search of a technique and style that fulfils my creative needs. This may well be an ongoing quest. Presently the quest has brought me to a technique that could be described as mixed media incorporating encaustic, acrylics and inks and a style which is semi abstract.

My work is painted on box canvas, board or card. The latter are mounted and framed behind glass.  All finished work is fixed with a non-yellowing acrylic varnish to provide permanency.  Work is displayed in galleries around the region and at my studio, which is open by appointment. Commissions are welcomed.


I hope you enjoy viewing the website and browsing the gallery of my work.
