Maggie Ayres is a mixed media artist whose work continually develops as she discovers and explores working with new techniques and materials. She is ever focused on expressing her passion for texture, line and light through abstract work.
For the last two years, Ayres has been exploring the dynamic art of encaustics, painting with a medium made from melting beeswax with tree resin. Working layer upon layer, she builds up numerous transluscent layers on wooden panels, creating unusual visual depths as incorporated marks and colours build up.
Threads, fibres and rust-printed papers can be embedded too, along with fine additions of oil paint and graphite.
Maggie is based in studio 4 at Cannonwalls and Claverhouse and is participating in Wasps Open Studios between 16th July and 28th August 2016
