Medium: Encaustic, Cold Wax & Oil
Gallery Representation: Main Street Gallery, Cedarburg WI
In a previous life I was a Manufacturing Engineer. Now I am on a new artistic journey. Where previously I had been using my left brain, now it’s time to exercise my right side. I controlled processes before, now, not so much. I enjoy trying to express my artistic vision using beeswax and oil pigments.
I am drawn to paintings by their use of color and this is how I want to approach my art. I appreciate the luminescence and sometimes the ethereal quality when I use cold wax & oil. The painting is built in layers. I manipulate the wax using a squeegee and palette knife. I like to create textured surfaces and scape to reveal the layers underneath.
I enjoy this process immensely and find myself lost in time. A really good place to be. There is a real freedom when going with the flow of the moment.
