Making art is a process of slowing down and seeing - absorbing and translating - filtering and creating something out of nothing. As a painter, I try to provide a visual forum for people to re-member their cellular memories of living within the natural world. When another person views them, absorbs something of them, the art had completed its purpose of moving emotion from one person to another.
Working with encaustic has allowed the lines to live in various layers of reality. Paintings become carved, sculpted. Lately I've been seeking the linear aspect of natural forms and isolating them.
