Having been a professional artist for over 20 years in various mediums, I have developed a passion for encaustic wax painting and have incorporated my vast knowledge in mixed media to this new medium. Materials used in my abstracts, include, but not limited to acrylic paint, alcohol inks, oil pastes, metallics including Gold and Silver Leaf, other metals and found objects. By applying these techniques and heating and cooling the wax at different stages, gives my work a three dimensional and highly textured look. These paintings have a very organic feel and look as to resemble land masses, clouds, ocean-scapes and various terrains as if looking from above. It is this encaustic technique that let's the observers mind wander and imagination soar with subjective interpretation."
