Part of my creative process is writing. At the moment I'm working on a book and delving into all the different ways creativity has shaped my path.

I've added a new gallery to the shop, as well as an actual shop! Coming soon...a way for you to actually collect art directly from the site, avoiding gallery fees. Here's a sample from the new Spring collection.

Three years ago, when I discovered the encaustic wax medium, it changed my life.

It has taken me a while to refine the process and adapt my own style of presentation. I'm sure this is an ongoing process. But at the end of my last solo exhibit (I have had 3 in the last 3 years) I had to take a moment and reflect on how far I have come since that first day.
This piece was recently invited into the permanent collection of the Encaustic Art Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
