Heart Series Encaustic Painting


Sometime I will use images that are not my own. Not to claim them as mine more to connect with a collective unconscious. Old Anatomy books are a source of inspiration. They are distant, somehow removed from the actual subject they are meant to represent. I recycle stamps from my father's collection and often re-use his written Scientific research reports or just as likely pages torn from an 1800s Tennyson book of poetry given to me by a grade school friend, stollen from her parents bookshelf . So now you know. Lost and found .

Encaustic painting, also known as how wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which coloured pigments may or may not be added. I use the hot wax technique to encase the images and preserve them. Prints Available
