Encaustic painting combines my early love of pinch pots and photography with my later loves of ceramics, oils and acrylics. Wax and blowtorches empower me to break rules, blending, layering and melting all at once. The creativity in my past marketing roles can’t hold a candle to this feeling.
As I have continued to experiment with art, a constant has been my love for the connection between my art and ny stories. Life is a series of stories and telling them through encaustic painting is my most meditative state. My art allows me to dwell on my thoughts about people I cherish. I often translate those musings into encaustic pieces through color palettes, textures, embedded objects or whatever makes me think of them. Custom pieces include photos, wedding invitations, and tidbits to make meaningful mementos.
Life is short and the most important part is the one you love. They are the voices in my head, the laughter in my memories, and the happiness in my heart. I hope that is what comes out in the stories from my studio.
