My work focuses on textures, patterns and scenes found in the natural environment. The bark of a tree, texture on a rock or the patterning in a leaf all inspires my art. I have recently been working with encaustics, which is painting with hot wax and pigmented wax. I work the wax with various brushes, heat tools and tools for texturing the surface. Sometimes I collage newsprint, gold leaf and other papers into the work. Many of my encaustic pieces are highly textured and washed with ink that enters the grooves and then wiped away from the top layer of wax.
