Painting and encaustic work is pure artistic energy for me.

Back to Collection

After my first introduction to encaustic, I fell in love with the medium’s luminosity and transparency. I enjoy making my own medium and creating my own palette of colors using existing earth pigments. I gain inspiration from landscape and natural colors. Painting and encaustic work is pure artistic energy for me. One piece leads to the next and allows me to explore new ways to express myself. Recently retired from healthcare, the artist in me is now at home with encaustic, enjoying the creative side of my brain to continue to do meaningful work.
