About Pat O'Neill

Hi, my name is Pat O'Neill (a self taught artist) and I would like to take you on a mystical journey to explore the ancient art of painting in wax through my encaustic paintings.

The medium is an ancient one dating back to the heady days of Pliny! The word ‘encaustic’ comes from the Greek word enkaiein, meaning to burn in, referring to the process of fusing the paint. Although they come from the same root word, ‘encaustic’ should not be confused with ‘caustic,’ which refers to a corrosive chemical reaction. There is no such hazard with encaustic.

I discovered encaustic art by chance whilst trying to teach myself something new! I love this medium as I never really know where it will take me. Usually it allows me to let my imagination flow unhindered to create incredible illusions.

In addition, I have discovered photography and draw much inspiration for future encaustic paintings through my digital photography.

You can find me here on my website or on my blog http://artinthewax.blogspot.co.uk or on twitter @PatArtinthewax

Look forward to seeing you and thank you for your time!
