My visual images are reflective of themes that have captured my imagination and inner vision. My art has a primal quality and is inspired by "outsider artists" or art outside the mainstream. It has a naive, heart-felt sensibility. Working from the figure, portraits and being in the landscape are also my passions. I have recently discovered the encaustic medium which is an ancient process that fuses wax pigments, resin and beeswax. I love the immediacy of the process and the physicality; one is able to embed objects and create an abstract narrative. It has immense flexibility and suits my personality to a tee!
