Welcome...I am an encaustic artist living in Co. Kildare. Inspired by my love of the landscape and natural materials, I use a handmade blend of Irish beeswax, damar resin and raw pigments on wood. In tune with a sustainable art practise, I explore the ancient painting process of encaustic, meaning to 'burn in', heat is used throughout the process. The molten encaustic medium is applied in layers to a birch panel, giving dimension to my painting, almost interpretating the landscape organically... The lustrous quality of encaustic reflects the soft diffused light of the landscape. Rather than actual representation I aim to capture the atmosphere & sense of a place evoking feelings or memories within.
Art for the Soul inspired by the rhythm of nature...Enjoy.
