Statement

As an encaustic artist, I want to show the world what joy art can bring them. Art should make you feel something within. There is so much beauty and happiness around us and we don’t even realize it. There is so much beauty and happiness around us and we don’t even realize it. All we have to do is be still and look for it.

As an artist I know see the world in a whole new perspective. I see colors more vividly, the light and shadows with more intensity and the sky as a large encaustic wax. As the clouds form different shapes constantly, so does the melted encaustic wax. As children we use to lay for hours looking at the clouds changing and seeing different objects they could make. I do the same thing with my encaustic wax. I become spellbound by it’s beauty and before I know it two hours have gone by. Someone once said “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. My goal is for people to see something beautiful in the colors, shapes, and movement of my paintings to remind them of something or some event in their life.

Selected Exhibitions

Encaustic art is the process of using a medium of melted beeswax and damar resin melted to 120 degrees. You add dry pigment to make the different colors you need. Afterwards apply 6to 8 coats on a pine bark canvas fusing after layer. You use a heat gun or a blow torch so the layers will adhere each other. Now the creative process begins! I hope this painting brings you as much joy as it did me making it. Enjoy!
