heat…beeswax…oil paint is what’s in my studio.
Mixed Media and Encaustic.
Summers work in the garden finds it’s way into my art during wintertime in an abstract manner. The remembrance of plants, insects and the soil attaches itself to papers and fabrics when it’s been dyed with plants, buried in the compost or in the earth. Pattern appears that are metaphors of life and death, natures cycle. To capture these patterns in the wax and build new layers of paint and collaged elements is what appeals to me.
