Artist statement: As a re-emerging artist, I am inspired by the world around me. I create landscapes, florals, and attempt to build interrupted abstracts with oftentimes recognizable elements. I love the warmth of working with encaustic at times adding in mixed media and oils to build up the juicy layers. I carve in, scrape back and fuse with heat to make my art. Please contact me directly with questions about my practice or purchase of work.
