For me to find my voice as an artist has been a journey.
Always working in the abstract, I discovered the ancient method of painting with wax and it is my exclusive medium of choice.
The melting of the beeswax, the adding of pigment, the aroma that scents the studio while I work, the heating, re-heating of the media, the capacity to etch, scrape, collage, print and build up layers are only part of the appeal of this media.
While encaustic media has a basic set of rules, it is during the process that I find myself breaking the rules and creating a piece that I may not be able to reproduce.
