About

I like bridges.

I started making encaustic art three years ago, when I attended a great workshop run by Shannon Newby, now of the lovely shop Fontface Press https://www.etsy.com/shop/fontface)

I studied art and composition in college, but it was finding the right medium that really got me started producing more art. Eventually, I wanted to find a way to keep making art and pressing into the learning and development of this media. I set up a studio corner, but my day job still kept it mostly in the corner.

I'm learning and exploring more, thanks to a recent break in work schedule, and plenty of stories and ideas are coming up soon on my workbench. I've learned to think more of each piece as a kind of poem--deep moments, visions, and conversations concentrated into a single image.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I also do custom work, and I love to work on an idea, quote, or image that is special to you.

Welcome to my Etsy shop! I'm a Seattle-based encaustic artist. I make pieces that come from the meaning and inspiration I find in the world, in books, in friends, and in paying attention.

I love the medium of encaustic beeswax-based art but sometimes work in other mediums as well. If you have any questions or ideas, I'd love to hear from you.

Encaustic paintings are fragile and heat-sensitive beyond 150 degrees. Each painting will be carefully shipped and includes a care card and a polishing cloth.
