 Artist Statement

"The medium of oil encaustic and the expressionistic brush strokes layer the colors from a limited palette. This technique gives the painting a luminous quality. As the viewer changes positions or the light of a room changes, so does the painting. In this sense, the work is alive; it participates in their environment."
