I have been exploring encaustic, (bees wax), painting over the past seven years. I work in a variety of media and in this work I am incorporating my love for drawing, painting,collaging and composing visual stories. I am using a painterly approach to combine calligraphy, drawings, pieces of found images, photographs and textured papers in a narrative style. The encaustic wax medium allows me to work in layers, trapping fragments of color, memory and message in time.
I have been teaching and inspiring students in a wide variety of me.dia for forty years. Individual creative expression combined with the confident handling of technique is the goal. I currently teach private and group classes in my winsted studio at Whiting Mills
