My work is diverse in style, scale and media. My subject matter reflects the Flora and Fauna of the countryside in particular that of the Breckland area where I live. Whether it’s simply at home tending to my garden or out and about exploring this diverse county with my family. I like to capture these special and sometimes fleeting moments in my mind’s eye and then go on to create the essence of this moment within my artwork.
I work in a variety of mixed media chosen to best portray my vivid mental image and often work in encaustic wax. This is made from pigmented beeswax and is heated using specialist tools which I use to manipulate the wax. What I find most captivating about this unique medium is the depth of colour and expressive mark making that can be achieved with it.
