I create art to express ideas and emotions that cannot be expressed by other means. Due to a long love affair with dance, my artwork is often inspired and informed by movement, use of space, lighting and sound. Im currently working in a series that focuses on vintage theaters and dancers. Im often interested in everyday objects that tend to go unappreciated beyond their practical purpose, like zippers and lightbulbs. Ive worked in a variety of media over the years ranging from painting and installation to performance. For the last year Ive been working with encaustic and am thrilled by the seemingly endless possibilities this medium offers. I find encaustic media to be the ideal conduit for me at this point, as diverse memories and influences are manifested in my new work.
