I'm excited to share my collection of work with you. These pieces reflect the various stages of my four-year journey in encaustic painting. After a long break from the fine arts, I found myself needing to disconnect from the daily barrage of technology. So, I taught myself the basics of encaustics and I began experimenting in photo encaustics. I soon transitioned into abstract landscapes and nonrepresentational pieces. I enjoy exploring the texture, translucent quality, and fluidity that can be achieved through the medium.
I paint to be creative, totally losing myself in the art as I paint, in the story it’s telling and how it connects with the viewer. I chose my focal point and let the story evolve. My musical art inspires people to play and my romantic paintings spark their desire to hug or kiss their partner. I see them look at my art and make their own stories.
