My goal as an artist is to offer a place of tranquility and experience. Whatever the object, I love to invite the viewer in to take a good look at our world and to contemplate life. Art has always been a God given talent and an escape for my own soul.
SEARCHING FOR MORE
Our over use of pollutants has created a serious problem. Many artistic creations use these harmful substances. I began searching for quality materials that are safe. I have discovered many. Handmade paper is a favorite, as is the recent discovery of driftwood. Encaustic painting (beeswax) is a recent passion. Encaustic paintings discovered in Egyptian Tombs are almost as rich in color as the day they were painted thousands of years earlier. Enjoy the beauty of these latest elements in my work!
