A transplant from Connecticut, I have lived in Nashville for many years. For many years I worked as a graphic designer and I now draw on those skills when composing my photographs. I have perfected an encaustic technique that requires soaking the images (printed on high-quality photo rag paper) with hot encaustic medium and then applying several coats of cold wax. The resulting image has the look and feel of fine leather and is flexible allowing for options for presenting. It is then either framed or adhered to a panel.
My work features a bold graphic quality. I love to enhance my images using a variety of techniques until it finally looks like how I imagined.
