Emma Wells BA (HONS) Artist Statement
I am continually inspired by my surroundings, whether it’s simply at home tending to my garden or out and about exploring this beautiful county with my family. What captures my eye first is usually colour and the atmosphere it evokes. I like to capture this special and sometimes fleeting moment in my mind’s eye and then go on to create the essence of this moment within my artwork

It's been fantastic to see all the effort that has gone in to the making of poppies to decorate our local churches, towns and villages. All to mark a century since the end of WW1. Here is a little tribute of poppies in encaustic wax.

About Encaustic Wax Art

I predominantly work with the medium of Encaustic Wax. This unusual medium is made from pigmented beeswax and is heated using specialist tools which I use to manipulate the wax. What I find most captivating about this unique medium is the depth of colour and expressive mark making that can be achieved with it. The wax is not a precise medium to work with and you often have to work and make decisions quickly. I feel it is these special qualities that suit my hand and ‘loose’ style of working, as I create that ‘captured moment’ in wax.
