From an early age I have had an obsession with art. Color & texture has always drawn me. I fell in love with Encaustics. I am captivated by the vibrant and translucent qualities of the medium and the seemingly limitless ways that is can be used. I make my own encaustic paints – a mixture of beeswax, damar resin and pigments heated to a liquid state – this allows me to adjust the amount of opacity or transparency of the medium. I approach each piece intuitively layering, scraping and gouging to reveal what lies below or applying paint to paper to create a monoprint. Each piece is one of a kind.
