Currently, much of my creative 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 discoveries emerge in the process.

Encaustic workshops are a joyful experience!!

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