My work with encaustic monotype printing is constantly evolving. My themes are often associated with movement and dance. I love the way I can interact with the artwork as I’m creating and transforming it with wax pigment on the heated surface. Recently I have been exploring the wonderful possibilities of Washi: Fine, hand made Japanese paper and I have used it here to create a 3 dimensional dress, evoking a dancer. It is a combination of Heritage Washi and encaustic mono type printing. The second art work is of the dressmaking mannequin that I again used in my exploration of dance and movement. During the pandemic this has been a life force for me.
