Two of my passions are painting and traveling. I'm a hot mess...I paint with molten wax!
I seek to express my connection with Nature, and convey the "extraordinary in the ordinary" in realistic and abstract images, in a way that acts as a metaphor and speaks universally to those who view my art.
I create vibrant, realistic paintings of nature using an ancient technique called Encaustic. I use only natural elements, painting on braced wooden canvases with pure beeswax and high-grade encaustic paints. I love the way the wax flows and creates new patterns and images. The translucent quality of the fragrant beeswax and resin allows light to penetrate the layers and radiate outwardly so that the paintings appear to glow with energy.
