Artist Statement

A painter, printmaker, and musician, I consistently have been drawn to art forms that are sympathetic to structure yet open to improvisation. I am interested in the interplay of color, line, and shape where relationships of harmony and balance play a significant role. Recent investigations into the mathematical expression of the proportional ratio found in nature and known as the Golden Section have, at times, had an influence on my work. This formula provides a means of recognizing and understanding the intricate connections between all things.

Encaustic, an ancient medium of molten beeswax, resin, and pigment, has allowed me to pursue the layering and scraping back that I find integral to my process of painting. The translucence created by the wax and resin yields a wonderful appearance of illumination from within. Always demanding, sometimes to the point of frustration, encaustic provides a balance of chaos and structure that satisfies while at the same time challenges my ongoing desire for problem solving.
