"My earliest experience was one of being filled with wonder in Nature and with all my passion I wanted to express this wonderful secret world. I picked up my first paint brush when I was about 7 years old and now here we are and I am still holding creativity in my heart and my hands in one form or another. Called into the healing arts on a 30 year journey and now arriving at the beginning of the spiral and picking up my paint brush once again to commune with Nature and the Alchemy of the Elements.
Nature, she still holds me, and I still hold her.
Encaustics from the Greek Enkaustikos meaning to heat, is a very ancient method of painting with melted beeswax, plant resins and pigments. From the very first moment I fell deeply, madly in love with this medium; from the delicate aroma of the melted beeswax, the sublime fluidity as it glides across the surface, the magic alchemy of repeatedly using heat on the multiple layers to the gorgeous glean of the buffed finished piece.
It takes 12-20 million flower visits for the honeybees to make 1 pound of wax!!! The Elements combine in the beeswax and I work with the Elements to create
one-of- a-kind pieces that re-unite us with our ancient and eternal relationship with Nature. I gather bark pieces from my hiking sojourns around the planet and combine crystals and gem stones for a unique and interactive artistic adventure".
