About Me

After years of living on the East Coast, my family and I packed up and moved West.  But instead of pounding out paragraphs on a keyboard, I picked up my paint brushes and revived an old dream. 


Over the years, my work has evolved from traditional oil painting to include encaustics and mixed media. My subject matter varies as much as the northwest weather and includes abstracts, landscapes and figures. 

For those unacquainted with encaustic painting--it's an ancient medium made of beeswax, pigment and damar. It was originally used by the Egyptians to paint portraits on sarcophagi.  In more recent times, ready-made encaustic media gives artists more time to explore subject matter rather than mix paint.  But because it contains wax, encaustic paint must be heated into a liquified form to adhere to a solid surface.  Like acrylics, it can be thinly applied or thick like impasto.  You can also carve it, scrape it or embed in objects like maps and photographs, thread and fabric. 

This website gives you a bit of everything--well, ok, not everything. If you love something and it is sold, contact me anyway.  I may have something similar in my studio.  I also hope to get some charcoal figure drawings added soon.  

Thanks for visiting!
