About

Encustic Artist

I am excited to share with you my current collection of work. These pieces reflect the various stages of my four-year journey in encaustic painting. After a long break from the fine arts, I found myself needing to disconnect from the daily barrage of technology. So, I taught myself the basics of encaustics and I began experimenting in photo encaustics. I soon transitioned into abstract landscapes and nonrepresentational pieces. I enjoy exploring the texture, translucent quality, and fluidity that can be achieved through the medium. Most of my paintings are inspired by observations made during my daily commute and travels and the emotions these experiences invoke.

Encaustic is a wax-based paint made of beeswax, resin, and pigment. The mixture is heated to about 170 degrees Fahrenheit and kept at a molten state for painting. The encaustic paint is applied to a rigid surface. After each layer is applied, the piece is fused by blowtorch or heat gun. This technique creates a unique texture and vibrancy that’s difficult to reproduce in other mediums.

    I'm an artist from the Midwest, who has an addiction to coffee and too much coffee creamer. I draw most of my inspiration from the landscapes I see around me everyday. This includes my daily commute and occasional travel for work.
