ENCAUSTIC has become an inspirational medium for me for the past 8 years in expressing nature, the rocks, skies, ocean, and landscapes. Beeswax, oil paint and a torch are my tools. I love fusing the color I brush on with wax to create layers of transparencies. I experiment with various papers on wood. The process brings me to abstract from the natural architecture of the land and sea. My journey is to create new works that expand my senses of place, opening up new spaces to fill with color, making the unseen more “visible”.
