Thanks for visiting my site. I've been surrounded and immersed in art my entire life, as a student, as a teacher, and as a profession. I was drawn to the art form of encaustics in the mixed media abstract form while teaching drawing at the high school level. Drawing is precise. Formal. Exact. Structured. Abstract art allowed a different freedom of expression. And encaustic, being one of the oldest known art forms, added another level to it. I've been working with encaustics for nearly 20 years. My time living and working in major cities across the country - from Pittsburgh to Chicago, Minneapolis, Atlanta, and now Miami - has contributed to a spontaneity in my artistic approach while also influencing the natural elements in my work.
