About Us


I paint with melted beeswax. It's a process known as "Encaustic" from the Greek for "to heat", and is one of the oldest forms of painting, known to the ancient Greeks thousands of years ago. It can be shiny smooth, or highly textured. It allows one to layer or scrape away, to be translucent or opaque, or to collage objects into your surface.


My work is chiefly abstract, to allow me to make allusions to ideas, the works of other artists or emotions without being too literal, too specific. It also allows me to push beyond my comfort zone, to find unexpected connections.


Although I have a love of Art History and often have references to the past in my work, I use my art to explore, question or comment on things going on around me now. I reference the work of other artists, or social justice issues or just things I notice in our contemporary world. I work on large and small formats. Commissions welcomed, or I have a large selection of works to choose from.
