About The Artist

Artist Statement

Enthralled by nature and the beauty of my surroundings I began a creative journey into macro and abstract photography, drawn to essences.

Over time my creative expression turned inward toward the use of the tactile medium of encaustic painting (beeswax and damar resin).  I found a deep resonance with this fluid layering medium as it mirrors being in flow, as in water. As such, it is infinitely malleable.

Each encaustic piece consists of multiple layers of painting with pigmented wax. The process is to melt the wax, paint with the wax, fuse with heat and repeat the steps, in this way the shapes and textures arise.

My focus is to bring an abstract interpretation of the beauty I see in our ever changing surroundings.
