Encaustic- the word makes you curious and that’s how I became an encaustic painter. When I was painting with oils, someone said my work reminded them of encaustic. This is how my career in encaustics started. I now can say after many years “why” I paint, it’s the journey of each wax painting. I let the wax painting tell me where I am going. It can be fun, exhilarating, exhausting and moment changing or it just simply happens, immediately. But I trust it, because its more than just me, it’s a visual story, feeling, statement or emotion. I hope you enjoy the visual conversation.
