A bit about Arts Encaustic

In 1986 Michael Bossom was a wood turner selling his goods at craft shows around the UK. During the last show before Christmas that year, Michael and his wife Shona met a French Canadian named Jean Marie Giraud, who was selling unusual pictures painted using heat techniques.

They bought one of his mysterious landscapes and before long Michael Bossom found himself entering this new and mysterious world. The wax effects, vivid and vibrant colours and forms that just ignite the imagination carried Michael forward into a completely new field of work. Today he is known for his inspirational artwork and creative enterprise. A brief story of the development of Arts Encaustic is outlined in these few pages.
