This was my first time showing Art In Wax in a large exhibition like this and my pictures were the only Encaustic Art works in the show, it was great to talk to people about working in hot wax.

Local Artists

It was good to meet some of the artists, Pauline Grove, who I have met before was there with some of her wonderful pieces, also great to see in person some of the work I have only seen online before through connections on Facebook, such as the work of Sharon Stone and Lori Wiseman who have kindly given their permission to show a couple of their pieces from the exhibition in this blog post.

Artist of the Month : Southend Art Club March 2014

There is a bit of excitement here @ Art In Wax as I am the featured artist for March at the Southend Art Club.

Southend Art Club

The Southend Art Club has a long history in the town and was established in 1929. Then known as the Southend Art Circle it was set up to promote art in the Southend area, a change of name to The Southend Sketch Club came later in 1969 renamed again as it is today Southend Art Club (SAC).

Featured Art In Wax

There are a selection of my encaustic paintings included on the SAC website in the Artist of the Month feature. Including some of my hot wax pictures on gloss card and some of my wax on wood pieces.

In the studio this week at Art In Wax :: Posted by: Hazel on November 8th, 2013

In The Studio @ Art In Wax This Week

I’ve been busy in the studio this week at Art In Wax.

This is a new wax on wood painting, 4 by 4 inches square, lots of layers of wax for a lovely smooth glass like look then some layers of colour for the flower which has more texture as I have carved gently into it ….. I also painted the sides of this panel to see how that effect looks ……

Today @ Art In Wax

I thought it might be fun to take a few pictures this morning before I get started …..

This is where I am working today

This is where I am working today, not going to be painting today, although lots to do! You can see all the pots of wax on the hot plate, which is not switched on so the wax is solid.

I received my order of supplies this week too, so have lots of stock now, new colours of R & F Handmade Paints ; Alizarin Orange, Alizarin Crimson, Egyptian Violet, Viridian plus lots of panels to paint on to ……..

Which is my next job, masking and preparing the panels with Encaustic gesso, ready to start on some new ideas I have for paintings ….

New Website and now my stationary

Leaflet and Business Cards


I was recently asked if I had any literature about Art In Wax, to which I naturally replied yes its all online on our website. As a web designer for business, Adrian (my husband) and I built this website as a natural progression to display my artwork, however this made me realise that I needed some hard copy literature too.

So I set to work this week and have designed a business card and leaflet for Art In Wax, the artwork was send to the printers on Monday and I have just had an email from UPS to say they will be delivered today. Exciting stuff!
