Nicola Dane uses predominantly Encaustic Art as her medium. Inspired by the ancient technique of painting with molten pigmented beeswax, used by the Greeks and Egyptians, Nicola aims to use wax to express modern issues and emotions. Drawing on her academic background in Psychology and having worked in the Mental Health sector, Nicola aims to make her work therapeutic. A form of Art Therapy, where the beholder is given the title and the image and is then left free to interpret the idea in their own idiosyncratic and subjective way. The other side to this is that the paintings are intended to be soothing in nature: therapy simply in the act of looking on.
