Back to Collection

As a contemporary, encaustic, impressionistic painter, I create large scale portraits that attempt to capture the moods and attitudes of my subjects with a palette of rich colors and hues. As the wax is layered, melted and fused in multiple sessions, the subject is revealed with controlled brushstrokes and the spontaneous blending of melted wax. Further study of each painting may trigger introspection and speculation of the sitter’s hidden wishes, dreams and desires. (all framed with a 1-1/4" faced black metal frame)
