About

Thoughts and memories captured in painted wax.

“I am interested in the process of thought and memory. I work with encaustic paint for its unique abilities to preserve life’s ephemera beneath layers of wax and paint. Dreams and daily life serve as inspiration for my works.”

Background

I am a self-taught artist, and create in various mixed media, including encaustic paint and resin. My mosaics have been featured in 'Cloth Paper Scissors' and 'Somerset Studio' magazines, and my jewelry has been featured in 'Belle Armoire Jewelry' magazine. I enjoy writing about my art adventures on my blog.

What is Encaustic?

Encaustic derives from the Greek word, 'Enkaustikos', meaning to burn in. Beeswax and damar resin are melted together and combined with pigments to create encaustic paint. This paint is applied hot and manipulated with a direct heat source. Encaustic is one of the most durable of all artists' paints, since wax is impervious to moisture and the colours do not fade.
