The Why Behind my Work
The intention behind my work is to grasp the sense of beauty and wonder that accompanies a child’s view of the world. My art is a constant pursuit to connect one back to these ideas while also acknowledging the separation from beauty and wonder which often develops as we age.
What is Encaustic?
My photo encaustic paintings begin with a fine art print of one of my images mounted to a cradled board. Layers of molten wax are fused over the top of the image to form a sculptural surface that cures over time and reflects light in such a beautiful way. I will often paint within the wax as I work, adding texture and depth.
