Glimpsing the Dream, 2020.

My abstract work often includes representational elements encoding family stories, personal secrets and spiritual messages.

I am an American-Luxembourgish-Australian photographer, encaustic and mixed-media artist, and professional restoration ecologist based in Sacramento. My art resides at the intersection of science, dreams, and spirituality, and is informed by studies in language, cartography, Tibetan Buddhism, Japanese ceramics, ornithology and botany. I use digitally altered images of nature, ancient motifs, vintage ephemera, and patterns to map dreams, spiritual and physical journeys, ecological systems and climate change. These dream-like encaustic paintings incorporate digitally altered original photography, collage, impressionist-style application of color, and excavations. My abstract work often includes representational elements encoding family stories, personal secrets and spiritual messages.
