I am fascinated with texture, patina, old script, typography and ephemera that speak of the passage of time. Weathered aging brick, peeling paint, lichens and moss on rocks are all intriguing and beautiful to me. These elements and marks made beautiful by human hands and by nature frequently inspire my artwork. My art hints at layers and invites the viewer deeper. I particularly love the luminous qualities and depth of layers that emerge with encaustic and cold wax and oil painting.
