For the past few years I have been working exclusively with encaustics. I am intrigued by the versatile and malleable properties of this ancient medium. I find an affinity with the lustrous and uniquely beautiful surfaces which can be achieved with this wax based paint. I am fascinated by the process of applying the molten paint and the myriad of ways in which the image can then be worked.
The passage of time is also reflected in the botanical images which reappear in my work. As my garden matures I discover more and more solace in the transient beauty of that nurtured space. I am awed by the mysticism and renewal found there.
