Artist’s Statement: Growing up around artists I explored many artistic media. Taking a class in encaustic painting in 2006, I found what I was looking for. The medium fits my personality perfectly; impatient and goofy. Working in encaustic allows me to be who I am. On the spot, I can change the direction and dive right into something completely different. I use found and recycled old metal objects in my work because there is an exciting challenge in turning something that has been discarded into something new. When I paint, I usually just let the medium direct me where it wants to go. Like the molten beeswax, I just let it flow.
