Encaustic painting is my passion. I love the process of melting fragment beeswax infused with vibrant pigments and fusing layer upon layer of unexpected texture with my blow torch.


Encaustic literally means to burn. I love the spontaneity and transformative properties of molten wax. It allows me to build a story encapsulated in a luminous, tactile medium.


My work mirrors my life, which is also multi-layered, enriched by the texture of family and friends and the ebb and flow of the seasons.
