Mixed Media

I'm largely an encaustic painter w/a strong focus on using recycled materials and found objects. I build the entire piece from substrate to paint to frame. Encaustic art is different from most mediums in that it employs a “clear” layer- this allows for great depth & transparency. I incorporate a wide range of ephemera such as navigation charts, maps, photos and old ledgers to help tell different stories as viewers have a recognition of something familiar in a new form.
