My painting is a influenced by the power of nature. I paint first with water colors, then with encaustic paint, layers of hot beeswax, pigment and resin. I coerce it onto paintings as a hot, drippy, excitable mess. It changes quickly from a molten liquid to hard, solid matter. Heat is used throughout the process, especially to fuse layers of wax together. Encaustic painting is an alchemical process of extreme versatility. It is both additive and subtractive. It can be painted, sculpted, or moulded. Between the layers the process is quite unpredictable.
