I offer workshops in the use of cold wax medium with oil paint. These deal with the basics of layering; adding textures both physical and visual; incorporating collage elements; adding other materials such as sand, pan pastels, inks, etc. Various compositional conventions are discussed and tried.


The workshops are structured with demos and individual work time, individual and group feedback and discussion.


I have been using cold wax in my own painting for a number of years. I have studied with Rebecca Crowell and my work is cited in Cold Wax Medium, Techniques, Concepts and Conversations by Rebecca Crowell and Jerry McLauglin.
