Artist’s Statement:

My current medium is encaustic wax, but my art is built upon a background of tole painting, ceramics, photography and radiography. My art is influenced by impressionism and the abstract. The manipulation of materials with intended and unintended results is the method by which my art progresses. In the radiographic images I am concerned with line, shape and form; in the encaustic pieces, movement, rhythm and texture. I seek to have my audience drawn to my artwork by subject and method and not by message. I feel my art should ask questions rather than provide answers.
