Currently, my focus is encaustic painting, a mixture of beeswax, dammar resin and pigment. It has been my medium of choice for the past ten years. I love the colour and texture that encaustic brings to my paintings. It is a delight to teach others because it is such a generous medium….exciting things happen in the process.



Workshops take place at my backyard art studio in Goderich, Ontario – accessed by a flight of stairs

Hearts and Stars

This is a chance to try out encaustic and learn some basic techniques using wood cutouts of hearts and stars as your starting point. They make lovely gifts or ornaments for your home all year round.
