2D Mixed Media

I was trained as a sculptor and spent many years creating ceramic artwork before focusing on paint as my primary medium. I bring a sculptural approach to my paintings, as I build up and scrape down my surfaces in an attempt to reach the core feelings that are evoked by site-specific locations in my home state of Texas. Incorporating encaustic was a natural evolution, allowing me to further explore surface and texture in my pieces. I also use pencil, charcoal, pastel & other materials in my work.
