Painting with Fire - My Encustic Art

Welcome to my encaustic art home page.  My work is largely nature-inspired and I strive to  create art that is organic, etherial and fluid.  Encaustic is a painting method that uses a medium containing melted beeswax infused with resins that significantly harden the wax once it cools and solidifies.  Pigments are added to the melted encaustic medium to produce the desired color. The medium is applied and fire-fused to cradled birch panels that serve as hosts for the jewel-like hardened/archival wax with unique dimensional qualities. 

Enjoy the tour of my paintings and encaustic reliefs and learn more about encaustics on this website.
