Oil | Mixed Media | Encaustic

I strive to make art that touches people’s hearts, either abstract or
figurative and has spiritual meaning for me. Through my art, I hope to
connect with others with beauty of harmony, color form and energy.
Dreams and meditation often give me a starting point on an image. I
usually work in encaustic .
Then comes the application of many layers of molten wax paint. With
encaustic, each layer is heat fused into the existing surface. At times I
draw or paint on the layers and then scrape and rebuild the facade.
I also use cold wax and oil . These paintings are also layered and
textured, but never heated because the medium contains solvent.
These actions are much like analyzing a dream. Layer after layer is
applied, scraped, incised, and marked to allow the truth of the piece to
speak. The revealed layers whisper their subtle messages. I never have
total control of my life or encaustic painting. Like jazz, there is
improvisation that can take a work to a deeper, more subconscious state
that can be meditative and musical. I allow my subconscious to take over
so that the work may transform me beyond the mundane and
predictable. I open my senses to the experience and emotionally consent
to a poetic and thrilling adventure. The fluidity of the encaustic medium
is challenging, exhilarating, inspiring and exciting, making a painting
that can be looked into as well as looked at. I strive for layered
luminosity that is appealingly tactile, encouraging viewers to stroke and
caress the surface, discovering the sensual experience of encaustic or
cold wax.
