Comfort, From the Start

  • This piece, "Comfort From the Start" was one of the first pieces in which I successfully embedded a real drawing in encaustic, without worrying about the piece being unstable (i.e potentially falling apart😏) Turns out the "magic" was this sticky, kind of gross organic paste...called "Yes Paste" of all things.

Art was a means of communicating without speaking when I was young and painfully shy. Figurative elements have always found their way into my work, regardless of subject matter. I want the viewer to see how the lines and energy I use relate to humanity. How we are all connected through life’s cycle.
