Encaustics is an ancient art technique that involves painting with melted pigmented beeswax and fusing the painted layers with a heat source.

My passion for books brought me to experiment with using books as a creative medium. Going beyond the printed word, I focus on the book’s physical form. Using old books, I fold, cut, and shred the pages to create abstract sculptures which present a new way of “reading” the book.
Hi, I’m Johwey. I have an overflowing passion for all things creative. Learn a little bit more about me. And nice to meet you!
I’m the kind of person who is always creating, always experimenting. Browse my works and get a dose of inspiration.
Let me share my enthusiasm and creative knowledge with you. It will be fun! (I offer both online and studio workshops.)
