I am a self-taught encaustic artist living and working in Washington, DC. I am drawn to encaustics because of their versatility and transformative nature.
My work often incorporates recycled objects and textiles. The use of unwanted materials reflects both my concern for our resources and the idea that the objects we use carry meaning beyond their functional use. We have the ability to reimagine our world through what already exists in it today.
My work is largely abstract. I explore our relationships with the natural world and with each other. Mental illness, and in particular, my life with depression, is a major theme in my work.
My work has been shown in various galleries and online, it is in the permanent collection of the Encaustic Art Institute (EAI) in Santa Fe, NM as well as many private collections.
