Three years ago, when I discovered the encaustic wax medium, it changed my life. I know that sounds drastic, but I fell in love so quickly with this process of encaustic wax monotypes, that I pretty much stopped everything else. 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.
