I am a mixed media artist. I am always exploring new mediums and new ways to use and apply them. I am currently use encaustic wax as my main medium. Ever since I was a young child watching my artist mother paint with melted crayons and wax I have always been fascinated by wax. In my early artistic years I was seriously devoted to the art of Batik and wax resist. I combine the use of oil paints, oil sticks, acrylic, charcoal, pastel, wire and whatever else that lands in my path into my art. I would best describe myself as a process artist- meaning I am most inspired with the process of creating rather than the end result. I paint in the manner of acting and responding, often with only a vague minimal idea of my artistic destination. Why should I approach art any other way? If I did I would miss all the wonderful and inspiring side roads along the journey. And to me that is what my art is about....the journey.
Sunday May 8th 2005, at the Beyond Decor Gallery in Palm Beach FL, my series "The Abstract Woman" will be unvieled with new works in celebration of woman as mothers. The work will be posted after the event.
