"I strive to make art that touches people's hearts, either abstract or figurative and has spiritual meaning for me. Though my art, I hope to connect with others with beauty of harmony, color form and energy. Dreams and meditation often give me a starting point on an image. Then comes the application of many layers of molten beeswax, resin and pigments; each layer hear fused into the existing surface. At times I draw or paint on the layers and then scrape and rebuild the facade. This action is much like analyzing a dream. Layer after layer is applied, scraped, incised, fused and marked to allow the truth of the piece to speak. The reveled layers whisper their subtle messages. I never have total control of my life or encaustic painting. Like jazz, there is improvisation that can take a work to a deeper, more subconscious state that can be meditative and musical. I allow my subconscious to take over so that the work
may transform me beyond the mundane and predictable. I open my senses to the experience and emotionally consent to a poetic and thrilling adventure. The fluidity of the encaustic medium is challenging, exhilarating, inspiring and exciting, making a painting that can be looked into as well as looked at. I strive for layered luminosity that is appealingly tactile, encouraging viewers to stoke and caress the surface, discovering the sensual experience of encaustic.
