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.

Finding a Voice

After a Summer and Fall of playing and experimenting with wax and the variety of mediums it is compatible with, I feel I may have finally found the vehicles to work with wax in a way honest to my creative way and artistic self. These are the results I am hoping to carry further into 2016. So happy to have this sense of direction with my encaustic practice as we close out another year ­čÖé

Playing around with all the different things that can be done with the wax. Scraping, layering,scraping, glazing, and did I say Scraping? Letting it develop in it’s own way in it’s own time. ┬áNext step…Going BIG ­čÖé
