12 The Encaustic Workshop

17 Lansdowne Mews, Farm Road, Hove, BN3 1FW

Encaustic (hot wax) painting is an ancient process going back over 2000 years to Roman Egypt and little used until, in 1964, Jasper Johns, an American Abstract Expressionist painter, discovered its qualities in his seminal painting of the American Flag.

Encaustic medium is essentially heated bee’s wax with added oil pigment. The medium’s qualities of flexibility and translucence allow me to express my influences of impermanence, imperfection and transience.
