Absorbing all that surrounds me, my goal is to share my emotional impressions through my medium. I am grateful knowing that someone is moved by my art and it speaks to them. My primary mediums include cold wax and encaustic painting because I love the depth and luminosity, the ephemeral heat of the blowtorch fire, and the random impermanence of the pigment response - all the challenge and joy as I live inside my art. Primarily self-schooled in art since 2016, my style and voice continue to develop with exploration and under the tutelage of generous artists in the United States and Europe. In turn, I especially enjoy teaching art to youth and aspiring women.
