Why can’t we just BEE?


They promote it for bikini waxing but I prefer to use natural beeswax to paint. Recently I also did some experiments with putting wax on a clay sculpture (clay is porous and adheres well to the wax). It took me to further exploration of all kinds of materials, including the leafs of our Magnolia tree. Some experiments (like plastic) did not survive but that doesn’t mean it was valuable to try and see how strong or fragile different materials are.

The beekeeper where I get my wax, gave me a hive which is so fascinating to look at and to realise it has been created by bees.

Stone face


Stone Face

Been playing with photoshop, you can find the original version of this sculpture ‘Stone Face’ at my Sculpture page, as well as a few other new uploads at the Painting page in the menu.

Somehow I made Stone Face accidentally, had a stone on my outdoor table to prevent my papers from blowing away, had a leftover of clay in my hands and before I realised I was sculpting a face on the stone and assembling the stone to a small rock.
