Most of my subject matter is nature-inspired, whether it is a botanical specimen, traditional landscape, or billowy clouds in the sky. My art translates the subject into whimsically mysterious, albeit, identifiable forms. I use encaustic materials (beeswax and damar resin), pigments, shellac and a propane torch to create art on birch panels. The ancient painting medium — encaustics — was first used by Greek artists as far back as the 5th century B.C. The medium seduces me to be experimental and playful. Fire and wax dance to my music— orchestrated and serendipitous. My goal is to inspire those who see my work to look more creatively at the world around them, to discover beauty reflected in ordinary and treasured places and things in the world we all share.
