On day 30, I discovered encaustic painting. I needed to fix a bit of card unto my board, saw the beeswax on my shelves, melted it. My world changed that day. I was like a woman possessed, mind body and soul trapped in the lavish layers of beeswax and pigment, seduced by the sensuality of the encaustic process.
Once you start applying heat and fire unto the molten pigmented encaustic medium, anything can happen and you can watch the painting change and transform in front of your very eyes...
a true wonder to behold.
I had found my passion, my Fire and I felt alive.
Since then, my business has grown literally like wild fire. I myself built my own encaustic studio and have been facilitating encaustic painting workshops around Ireland since then. This year, I have created a you tube channel and do weekly live demonstration on FB where I demonstrate encaustic techniques with live Q&A.
