4944 Pearl Street St, Boulder, CO 80301
From the corner of Foothills/Diagonal Hwy and Pearl Street, go east on Pearl to 49th, turn right going north one block until it dead ends at "Old" Pearl Street. Turn right going east and I am located in the third warehouse building on the right. STUDIO C - My studio faces west.
An exploration in color and texture, in strength and fragility, the spectrum of light and dark, shadows and patterns, subtle, earthy intuitive abstracts layered with images and asemic writing. I’m attracted to earth, rust and stone; evolution and decay.
The perfection of imperfection. Many themes in my work reflect my experiences as a child in Michigan and professional career as a designer, with my aesthetic being shaped by the dichotomy of the gritty landscape of Detroit juxtaposed with the pristine ski slopes and the open country. I strive to make art that expresses a sense of evolution and the beauty of imperfection within a contemporary framework. I am enthralled with the balance of refinement & rawness and precision & wild abandonment, and the emotional tonalities the combinations evoke. The subtle changes that take place settle comfortably on and below the surface and the patina is much more beautiful than the new and unforgiving. Enamored with the visual arts, my involvement doesn't end with encaustics. I love all design; architecture, interiors, graphics, clothing, jewelry, furniture, typography, photography . . . the innumerable ways in which something can be presented to the eye fascinates me. All influence my work and my encaustics are often layered with my drawings, manipulated photos, hand calligraphy and impromptu text allowing the viewer to fill in and interpret.
