Abstract Constructions of Love
I love color, form, and the heat of encaustic. These elements ignite my senses and bring forth a type of construction that is intuitive and reflective of my environment. Nature is my essential teacher and the natural environment my best learning environment whether in my native California or in Brazil where I travel yearly.
This confluence of Brazil and California inspires me to explore the use of strong color, bold shapes and organic mark making.
I paint to experience positive change, curiosity and connection in life. I have learned from personal experience that color is a powerful change agent and can be used to influence emotions, health, and soulful integrity. As I work with Color, I feel an undefined language linking the physical and emotional geographies. I move and make choices with my body. Melodic. Decisive. Pausing briefly.
