Devon Open Studios

Devon Open Studios

I respond to the colours and textures of the landscapes of the south west, from moor, coast and woodland using a variety of media: oils, watercolours, acrylics, pastels, printmaking and encaustic. Sketchbooks and journals will be displayed along with a range of artwork for every pocket, prints & cards. I will demonstrate and love to discuss my work.

New work explores the ancient art of encaustic techniques used decoratively for over 2000 years from the Greek meaning ‘to heat or burn in’. I had to carry out a great deal of research into this challenging process involving the melting of beeswax and damar resin creating a molten medium for painting or pouring, building up fused, pigmented layers with intense heat. My garden studio sometimes resembles a science lab when working on encaustics - I can be found, blow torch in hand, looking like an extra from a Star Wars movie!

My garden studio will be open between 11am & 4pm every day except Mondays and Fridays
