Exhibitions    from the Hive

27.11.16 to 27.01.17

This exhibition is my third encaustic exhibition, it is my first since the building of my dedicated studio space in Braddon, which is affectionately reerred to as "the Hive". The name is a tribute to the bees whose wax makes my works possible, and the notion of a hive being a centre of creative industry. Many of the works in this exhibition reflect the beautiful, rich colours of the outback, inspired by my travels through Western Australia, particular the Canning Stock Route. Other works, reminiscent of Monet, capture the liquid light that filters across the water lily covered ponds, using wax over natural dyed silk. This exhibition was held at the Yarralulumla Gallery Canberra.
