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.
