Working primarily in encaustic I follow several interests in subject matter, often images of nature,
abstracted or obscured:most often decaying botanicals. Lately I am drawn to simple shapes with
little to distract from the wax surface.
- Investigation of the idea of landscape as the product of a social dialogue
- Collecting pieces of thinking from political encounters
- Create and manipulate environments in two and three dimensions.
- Variety of media and materials
In my recent work, I construct tableaux specifically for the camera, staging dead birds and flowers that I collect in the urban areas and parks near my home, to create new forms--referencing J. J. Audubon and Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.
