Artist and Creative. I am fascinated with being able to translate the human story into a visual representation. Transforming a passionate narrative to an abstract yet real representation. My work primarily encompasses two media: oil and encaustic. Each allows me to express my understanding and expression of place in very different ways. My oil painting style is painterly and moves between brush and pallet knife depending on the subject and movement of the piece. My encaustic work is much more abstract as it flows with the heating and application of the wax. Of late I have combined oil, encaustic and mixed media in many of my pieces.
