Artist’s Statement

The profusion of color, the enticing textures, the play of light…these are what I love about the art I create, and I want to share this vision with the viewer.

The images I try to capture in my photography and encaustic painting deal with things animate and inanimate—I am drawn to people’s faces filled with emotion and meaning, and I am fascinated by complex reflections of light. Often I focus on a particular facet of an object rather than the whole.

I hope to transform the literal view of the object into something that is perceived visually and emotionally as a new entity.
