Find out what's happening on my YouTube channel - a place where I share my expertise in the world of encaustic painting.


I currently post two shows each month: Fab15 and The Edge. The Fab15 is a prerecorded 15 minute show of me experimenting with a tool, technique, method or material for the very first time!


The Edge is a 40 minute live stream demonstration show. While I demonstrate, you can comment and ask questions, so that everyone can get the most from each session. I've listed my upcoming shows and their links below. Feel free to give me a thumbs up, subscribe, comment, or join me for a show sometime.
