I am a collage artist at heart. Whether combining these scraps with encaustic or paint, or both, I feel an emotional connection to the textures, bits and strings I’ve salvaged. My work carries a message of identity and asks the viewer to consider their own value system or sense of worth. It’s about seeing something beautiful in the discarded. About giving new life to what has been broken and cast out. It’s about seeing worth in what has been deemed worthless. And value in the valueless. Ultimately it’s about humanity. And redemption. And love.

My encaustics begin with layers of texture and color, embedded drawings, scraps of watercolor-stained paper, unpremeditated marks. I search for random forms of color and line, turn it sideways or upside down, make more marks. These become a jumping off point as I discover more intricate forms, which themselves are alternately created and destroyed – sometimes several times over – by a frenzied process using any medium or material at hand.

After careers in graphic design, and advertising sales, I’ve returned to art. I spend half the year in Lake Geneva WI and half in Tucson AZ where I was introduced to encaustic. The flexibility of the ancient medium and the surrounding environments inspire my dimensional work. I use layers of color as well as flexible bases for my organic forms. I’ve exhibited around Arizona, Wisconsin, New Mexico and Chicago.
