I have worked with beeswax since 1999. It has become my hobby,my obsession,my stress relief, and after I retire from the “real” world, I will work with beeswax for the rest of my useful life. I work with both rolled and poured pure beeswax,and sometimes combinations of the two. Candles,ornaments, and wall plaques are all things I enjoy doing, the more complicated and detailed the better.
A proud member of the International Guild of Candle Artisans for about ten years now, in more recent years I have also become a member of the Candlemakers Network. For 10 or more years I have been doing various Craft Shows, mostly in New Brunswick. Over time there have been many people wanting to see where and how I work, so now they will get the chance. Believe me, when I wax a floor, I really wax a floor! I just get totally involved in what I am doing .
My favourite quote is “Everyday life can tear at one’s soul, art reminds us we still have one”.
