About

Encaustic on panel. It's simple; I create art because it makes me happy. I try not to overthink the process of what I’m painting and let my intuition be my guide. I love laying down layers and layers of color not knowing if they’ll emerge later or be sealed in the history of the painting. There’s a distinct relationship between the layers of my paintings and my own life experiences. Revealing bits of history when necessary and keeping certain memories hidden and private. My paintings become a dialog of these layers, with transparent and opaque details. I build up these layers and then selectively scrape, incise and scar the surface creating a visible and archival history. There's always an element of surprise when my scraper or torch hits the surface. This plays perfectly on my conflicting need for control and spontaneity at the same time. The surfaces I create look delicate, yet they have endured a history of scraping and/or heating. My paintings are a visual representation and diary of my own journey and explorations.
