My studio projects combine unlikely materials with texture, such as applying encaustic medium to fiber, buttons or jewels onto two and three-dimensional spaces. Encaustic’s dreamlike luminosity unifies in a poetically expressive way. I enjoy finding interactive surprises in new combinations. Currently, I am not interested in developing narrative statements in my work. My husband and I live in the Sierra Foothills, West Point, California and grow lavender.
