I started my art career as an oil painter and at the same time have always had my eyes on Encaustic Painting. Wax really speaks to me, the way it draws me into the work, by mysteriously obscuring some images yet inviting me to see through the layers of wax. It is the perfect way for me to express the many layers of my life.
I have been painting with wax for over 10 years, mainly on wood panels with some mixed media thrown in. During the middle of 2015, during a long drive I began dreaming of my next project and encaustic monoprinting came to me while driving through a giant redwood tree. It felt so profound to be driving through this amazing millennial tree while contemplating the millennia of encaustic painting. Every time I create a Monoprint or an Encaustic Painting, I leave a bit of myself on the plate and on the panel, which is how I envision the encaustic painters felt in the 1st Century.
My art as well as my vision of how I have perceived my life has changed over the years. Encaustic art is my way of letting you and I get a special peek of my memories; it whispers to us of my childhood hope. My experiences remain in my memories like little treasures that have left a big imprint on the artist I am now.
