  • Biography
    I have always been drawn to color and space. As a teenager I discovered Paul Klee and of course Vincent Van Gogh, attracted to Klee's whimsy and use of space and Van Gogh's brilliant color sense I felt emboldened to pursue my way with paint and pencil.
    Though I still paint in oils I began working in encaustics 17 years ago and love the immediacy, luminosity, and flexible unpredictability available in the medium. The ancient archival history of the art is very attractive too. 
    What I choose to paint shifts between childhood memories, landscapes including abstracts and critters.
    What I'm looking for could best be described as a welcoming space, a place to be drawn into.
    It is geographical, but pulled to the extremes between inner and distant space, tempered by time and memory
