My current work explores themes of new beginnings, protection, passion, queer experience, universal human yearning, love, and celebration. My paintings exude brashness and delicacy, built in many layers. I work in encaustic paint (heated beeswax, tree resin, and pigments) on birch panels with elements of mixed media, on an intimate scale of 12” or smaller. I paint many layers of encaustic, and selectively incorporate oil pastel, charcoal, metal leaf, paper fragments, thread, textile elements, and other materials.
