Biography

Page Title

My artistic oeuvre is heterogeneous to say the least.  Born from a love of music, poetry, nature and life experience, art for me has a therapeutic value, in many ways helping with the battle against the indifference of humans across the globe and offering me a means of escape through deep meditative focus and creativity. 

The use of encaustic wax is the medium that gives a sense of the flow of life, the flow of history.  An old traditional painting medium, wax dates back as far as the ancient Egyptians and forward to me, the contemporary artist carrying the genesis of the artist through to the present day.

My love of photography then takes over, enabling me to capture segments of my original wax work and enlarge, enhance and create the most amazing images using the camera and digital editing.
