Encaustic paint is a combination of beeswax, damar resin, and colored pigment. The paint is melted on a warm pallet, and then applied in layers to a specially constructed wood panel using a blowtorch. Multiple layers are typically applied to create the finished artwork.
My paintings reflect an organic interpretation of minerals, water, and space. I am drawn to the loose, soft version of what naturally occurs in nature, sometimes combining this with stronger elements like stormy skies, powerful celestial events, shadows and mist, or leaves swirling in the wind. My paintings are built slowly, made in layers , concealing what was..with the optimism of a better future.
