Women are the creative, life-giving,

cosmos-shaping powers of the art they produce 

 

My Encaustic Paintings, Prints + Mixed Media works are based on an ancient method of painting with beeswax, known as encaustic (Greek: to heat or burn; dated 4th century BC). Examples from A.D. 100-125 survive today in the form of portraits on mummy castings in Greco-Roman Egypt. 

By blending pigments, beeswax and a tree resin called damar, I create a medium to paint with the molten wax. Having experience as a beekeeper, I feel a deep respect for these amazing creatures who fertilize plants, which supply us with their wisdom, beauty and nourishment.

Monoprints are designed by applying medium onto a heated aluminum plate followed with paper or fabric pressed into the wax while still warm.  This creates a one-of-a-kind image which can then be texturized or enhanced by introducing additional layers of wax with completely new elements.

Embellished One-of-a-Kind Prints on optional surfaces are also availableLet’s co-create!

Speaking + Teaching: I utilize 25 years of experience as a creative facilitator and provide speaking and teaching opportunities for groups, clubs and organizations on a diverse spectrum of topics. I would love to co-create an event that aligns with your ideas!
