The goal of my artwork is simply to create a wow.
I work exclusively in encaustic painting and the techniques associated with a hot wax process. I am intrigued by liquid wax and enjoy seeing what can happen when the materials are heated and fused, creating a wide variety of effect and depths in the layers beneath.
Techniques I incorporate into my artwork include: shellac burns, photo transfers, powdered pigments, use of India inks and 3D construction.
My abstract pieces explore the possibilities of texture and depth that can be created with encaustics. In stark contrast, my realistic pieces explore the detail and near photo realism you can achieve in encaustic painting.
Ultimately for me, it comes down to the process. What can be created with resin, pigment, and beeswax is limitless and is taking me on an amazing journey in search of wow!
