Many goals were set at the start of the year and in reaching for the stars my practice has attained new heights of which I had yet only dreamed. With no fear of failure (yet experiencing it very often!) I put my work out into the world and have seen the return with acceptance into 2 juried encaustic shows (Thank you Conrad Wilde Gallery & IEA!), inclusion in 3 group shows, sales and commissions all the way from Dubai, London and France to locally here in Los Angeles. ┬áThese small wins make the countless losses all worth while. For any who have a dream, cast your net wide and high and you WILL catch something good. Let’s see what the rest of 2017 has to offer!

New Series “Quiet Places”

Steadily living my dreams in the studio these days. A quiet series of landscapes seen through the ethereal lenses we call The Veil… dreamy, atmospheric, and open to anything. Made possible by the magic of bees wax.
