My surfaces are varied and painterly, ranging from oil to acrylic, encaustic to resin, mixed media to watercolor. My sense of design is direct and inventive. While I create art related to psychological, social, and historical themes, I am equally challenged by pure abstraction.
I am an experimental artist, allowing the process to guide my exploration. I love encaustic, as the molten wax encourages spontaneity, malleability and the opportunity for the direct translation of emotion.
I draw on a vocabulary of images—the ladder, an empty chair, figures, leaves, music, geometric shapes. I show my passion for travel and folk cultures in the work. I strive to be a spiritual traveler, between ancient and modern, serious and frivolous, simple and complex in form and content.
