About the Ebook
I am a self trained encaustic artist. When I left school I started my career in an engineering drawing office. Ten years later I joined Local Government as a Planning Technician, finally working as a cartographer at the MoD until I retired. All of my in-house training required the need to work in fine detail but included my love of art. During all those years my hobbies were varied. I combined painting with free-machine embroidery, having many exhibitions in the UK and abroad. Most of my work in those days sold through a lovely gallery in Cyprus. Some years ago I discovered encaustic wax. Many people try encaustic painting but they seem to give up after just a few attempts of using the iron. There is so much more to encaustics and in this book I hope to encourage you to share my exciting ideas.
