At my core, I am a romantic with a love of words and poetry. These attributes come into play while working with encaustic. I see my work as visual poetry; exploring the interplay of the senses layered with scrims of images and color. Emotional, passionate and sensory memories combined with a sensitivity towards nature, filter through my life as a woman and an artist. I am constantly inspired by poets, music, architecture, visual arts and philosophy. My studio work seeks to create paintings that resonate with history as well as modern day. In my work you will find order and disorder, hints of the rare and the ordinary, glimpses of loss and longing, all woven together to create a unique experience.
