When I create - one can barely call it “painting” – with encaustics, I let the medium guide me. I start with a vague idea of form and just let the process happen - there are no rules. I just allow the qualities of the wax and my subconscious to take over.
I am intrigued and drawn to the themes of macro versus micro, the primordial, ambiguity, metamorphosis and mutation. As a result, my work can be interpreted differently depending on the viewer and is often both intriguing and disturbing; I strive to draw the viewer into an emotional or visceral response.
