About this pro

I have been doing Encaustic since June of 2017. A friend from Canada brought it to my attention. 

I started with a basic craft iron, and evolved to the Encaustic iron and stylus. At first it was abstracts then I began doing sea scapes and mountain scenes. I have encorporated drawings, mainly owls. 

I have 5 pieces in the Currituck County Arts Council Gallery, and am currently the secretary as well. 

Not many people I have talked to around this area have heard of Encaustic Melted Wax Art. I would like to bring not only the art but the history of this beautiful relaxing technique to this area. I have taught my son, fiance, two nieces and two grandsons, they love it. 

Workshops will be 2 hours you will learn some fun facts, tools, technique, and most of all how the flow of the wax helps melt away anxiety, depression, and stress.

I am able to teach one on one or a group of three. Location: I can come to you or we can set up at the Gallery  from 6pm-8pm or on Saturdays 10am-12 pm 1pm-3pm by appointment. 

I am currently looking for closer accommodations in the Va Beach and Chesapeake area. 

Wavers  will be provided for children due to the fact we are using heated tools.


4-12 with parental supervision and waver.

12-18 with parental permission and waver. 

Adults over 18

Families workshops and party workshops are welcome. 

I love how the flow of the  creations need no intentions. 

I love how you lose yourself in the creations and find yourself at the same time. 

I love to socialize and help bring out the creativity hidden inside those who feel they cannot create.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The workshops take about 2 hours.

Set up and breakdown takes approximately 10 to 20 minutes.

I will go over a brief history about when Encaustic first came about, what tools we will use how they work, I will go over saftey precautions, due the heated tools, I will show how to clean tools. I will show techniques. Together we will create beautiful master pieces.
