- Encaustic painting on linen canvas with lead shot
Helen Comerford trained as a sculptor and worked with a variety of materials until she discovered wax as a medium while working on a small commission in the early nineties. When, in a whimsical moment, she put beeswax together with pigments, she discovered the ancient art of encaustic painting used by the Egyptians and Greeks. She has continued to explore and refine works in this medium ever since.
