Cold wax and Oil
50.8 cm x 40.5 cm

In my studio, my muse is Cold Wax. Cold Wax Medium is created by combining beeswax, damar resin and an odorless solvent that is mixed with oil paint. Layer upon layer is applied using a multitude of tools such as palette knives and scrapers. I then use a sharp tool to carve into the wax revealing buried colours. These striations create the mood and mystery to my paintings and the intuitive style allows the exploration of imagination allowing each piece to unfold and emerge and become. The paint, the wax, the tools give me a feeling of being both the artist and the art itself. I have created paintings with purpose and yet the properties of this medium works in tandem with me to reveal these final images.
