Statement

I found myself at that place in time where you know you must do what you were meant to do and do it now or it will never happen.  For me, that meant creating art - taking the experiences and feelings of my life and placing them on a surface to try and capture meanings that I can share with others.  My hope is that the viewer of my art will share these experiences in a way that will move them, that they will take something with them that will be remembered.  I liken it to a dance where I invite them to share a moment of time with me and we will together explore thoughts of nature, secrets, times and places that we dream of or wish for.  Or at times to simply reflect serenity - a feeling of everything in its place and as it should be.  Sometimes the dance is samba-like, joyous and colorful - sometimes it’s a waltz, slow and purposeful.  But always, it is moving and requires thought and invokes emotion. I have used many mediums over the years, but none has captured my imagination like encaustic - an inspired blend of beeswax and damar resin.

Years ago, I read a book on the need for the re-enchantment of everyday life. We have forsaken our forest paths for concrete sidewalks, our gold seeking alchemy for modern physics, our fairy tales for reality shows.  My art allows me to recapture a naive sense of wonder about life.  For the moment, I can reconnect to the possibilities of love and nature and all that is life in its true essence.  I invite the viewer to share that with me - if you dance, I am a success.
