I discovered encaustic art through a friend, who let me try out her encaustic iron. The moment I used it I was hooked, and wanted to keep trying out different effects on lots of card! Thanks to my friend introducing me to encaustic art, I bought my own encaustic art kit, and from then on I have been producing my own work. I love the fact that you can use such a range of different colour waxes, and obtain such a variety of effects using just an encaustic iron and nothing else. I enjoy observing people as they look at my finished work and describe what they can see- this often varies quite significantly from person to person. In many cases, my encaustic art makes the observer think, as they try to interpret what they can see. Often, the more you look, the more you see. My encaustic art reflects my love of bold, vivid and bright colours, and of 'other worldly' imagery. A lot of my art is abstract, but I also really enjoy producing landscape and various pieces with fantasy themes.
