I work in multiple art mediums: encaustics, photography, printmaking and mixed media.*

I have always loved exploring the world looking for textures and shapes.  With my artwork I try to incorporate those natural textures and shapes into my artwork, enhancing them and increasing their luminosity and color.

Mixed media can include: bees wax, damar (tree sap), dry pigments, water colors, oil paints, india ink, charcoal, chalk, shellac, spray paint, powdered graphite, tissue paper, transfers, etc.

Photo-encaustic means the base image of the piece is a printed photograph on archival paper (watercolor, printmaking, etc.) using archival inks.  I then use mixed media to finish the piece.
