Pat Collingwood (pjc gallery)

Pat Collingwood retired last year after more than 30 years working in an office environment. A keen amateur photographer for many years, she recently turned her attention to learning painting and drawing skills at local classes.

It was during one of the classes that someone explained about encaustic art (hot wax painting), which sounded so interesting that she decided to give it a try. Pat was hooked from the moment she created her first picture using this technique.

Due to the large amount of art materials Pat has accumulated and the lack of a dedicated work space in the house she started off working on the dining room table. She has now moved onto better things having had a lovely studio built in the garden where she can create whenever she wants.

I enjoy visiting art exhibitions but most of my inspiration comes from nature.’
