The Artist Says:


A recurring theme of “calm versus chaos” is prominent in my work. Natural and organic textures combined with geometric elements in abstract landscapes tell emotional stories of places I have been or seen. Encaustic is the perfect expressive format for this theme—the very theme of my life, it seems—as it is a hallmark contradiction by its very nature: controlled yet unpredictable; simplistic yet complicated; restrained yet uninhibited. Encaustic art captures visually my personal quest for balance.




Biography


Pursuing peace and joy is synonymous with creating expressive works of art.  I use a multi-sensory and multi-layered approach, which creates complex and juxtaposed references of nature.  Layers of rich, deep colors create a smooth translucent surface, while heavily three-dimensionally textured areas intrigue and beckon the viewer. I find the beeswax’s aroma magical and its physical properties (when fired, cooled, and reworked) unlike any other art medium. Manipulating the wax makes it lifelike, as it cools quickly but can be reworked with endless possibilities. The finished product is translucent and textured layers with embedded elements are that often “hidden” within.
 
A recurring theme of “calm versus chaos” is prominent in my work. Natural and organic textures combined with geometric elements in abstract landscapes tell emotional stories of places I have been or seen.  I am intrigued by geometry because of the repetition and mathematical order as it draws from my past experience as a designer where everything is arranged and has a place.
