*"The process of change in nature is a constant source of wonder and inspiration that I try to mimic in my work through the combination of wax and texture.*This process of change and transformation is supported by integrating many different media such as collage, encaustic (molten beeswax), printmaking and acrylic paint on various sustainable substrates." As a mixed-media artist, I create my art using acrylic paint, encaustic (molten beeswax) and collage on various substrates such as wood, canvas and paper. Primarily working on commission, I enjoy collaborating with clients to create artwork that leads me to the next step in the progression of my process and development while complementing an existing space. The focus of my artwork has always been about the beauty of nature and finding inspiration from the extraordinary colors and light. As I explore this idea, I have been intrigued with nature's ever-changing seasons. I often contemplate how nature relates to our cycles of existence."
