I have always had a passion for photography and capturing the subtle aspects of each moment. My encaustic work blends photographic imagery, collage, and other mixed media. Much of my work is archetypal, focused on timeless themes, common memories, and the duality of color and shadows. With this approach and the utilization of various materials, I create pieces that question the notion of space and objects and our relationship to these places and things.
I find working with wax a contemplative experience. I may have a strong sense of intention and will plan a stroke of the brush or a layering effect for long durations of time, but this work is often imperfect and needs to be executed quickly. With this truth, I always discover something new, even if it strays away from my original intentions. I love the diversity of encaustic work: the collage aspects, the variety of material, and the opportunity to layer.
I have transitioned from working with photography and encaustic to working with plexiglass, collage, and mono-printing. It feels great to step away from my comfort zone and take risks.
