New Works





Oil and Cold Wax

Cold wax medium is a mixture of white unbleached beeswax and odourless mineral spirits. When mixed, it gives oil paint a buttery consistency for painting thickly with texture, and hastens the drying time. I use palette knives and have developed a few distinctive painting methods including mosaic, contour, and layering. These methods can all be combined in one painting or used on their own depending on how the subject speaks to me.
