Photo Encaustic is a photographic print finishing technique, covering fine art photographs in beeswax and resin. I teach Photo Encaustic workshops to photographers and artists in my studio in U.K, on Skype and via downloadable video.
This is a six month project for young people in Stockport, Marple & Poynton area, funded by the National Lottery.
Do you, or a young person you know have an interest in photography or writing? Come and join us in the Goyt Mill for a free taster day of an upcoming free weekly and monthly event for social photography where you meet other people, make friendships, chat and enjoy together, whilst doing photographic activities that will empower you and learn to communicate your thoughts, through camera lenses. Themonthly themes we will explore are: Environmental issues, Wellbeing, Respect, Images & Identity. Come and enjoy, eat, chat and be merry! At the end of the six months we will present the images and writings in an exhibition. call 0161 484 5995 or email email@example.com.

This is a photo and video diary of my experience of producing the work in U.K and attending the opening for my 5th solo show at Robin Rice Gallery in Greenwich Village, New York. in May 2017. (http://robinricegallery.com) I produced 17 Photo Encaustic pieces for sale with ebony stained mahogany frames.
These are shots of 'Treeblur' 40"x40" commissioned by Ann Benson Reidy, (http://annbensonreidy.com/) a high profile Interior Designer in Denver, Colorado. Ann found my work on SaatchiOnline (http://www.saatchiart.com/petekelly). The piece has been very well received and i'm looking forward to seeing the finished piece in situ.
