Encaustic Paintings

Long for a Moment

Artist Statement
The fragility of nature has long been a recurring theme in my work. Influenced by my childhood in Hawai’i and my current residence in the Pacific Northwest, my paintings incorporate abstractions of nature and how they alter the world around us with the passage of time. I translate these impressions into layers of color, text and texture, capturing moments suspended in time. My work pairs modern materials with ancient technique to produce a luminous surface that captures and reflects light. The translucency of the wax creates layers of information, like the sediment of time, while stirring the senses of sight, smell, and touch.
