"Halloween Vanitas Painting Raven and Butterfly"


As with all great notions it started with a daydream; move to Alaska - settle down in a cozy cabin, next to a lake, with my beloved other, dogs, family and create ART to my heart’s contentment.  I am fortunate to have realized that dream.My art has been described as eclectic, mysterious, imaginative, beautiful, different, collectable and sometimes bizarre. Inspiration is everywhere so I strive to keep my heart, mind and spirit open to the possibilities.

I work in oils and encaustic beeswax (heated and fused beeswax) and three dimensional mediums and found objects, also known as assemblage art. Encaustic painting is an ancient technique that combines beeswax, dammar resin pigments, heat and wood to create one-of-a-kind works of art.  After taking an encaustic wax workshop I became - to put it politely obsessed with the medium, since then I have since have taken advanced workshops, taught and demonstrated encaustic wax techniques to adults & children, anyone that wants to learn about this fascinating medium, I am doing my part to spread “the cult of the wax.”

  My art can also be seen is May 2012 issue of Southwest Magazine, has been seen in a reality series “The Houston Chronicles” on the Lifetime network in the fall of 2012.
