Over the past few years the artist has been painting exclusively in encaustics. He specializes in wildlife and landscapes using his traditional drawing and painting skills in an impressionistic style.

Encaustic is a 100% natural product that consists of beeswax, damar resin (natural tree sap) and pigments.

Using a heated palette to keep the wax molten; an industrial heat gun in one hand and a brush in the other, he is constantly heating the board, his brush and the beeswax to create his paintings.

Being inspired by nature, his paintings represent personal experiences that he hopes brings a feeling of serenity and awareness of the animals and fragile environment that surrounds all of us.
