Artist Statement

My encaustic and fiber sculptures reduce larger images and concepts into elegant simplified forms. I pare down basic elements of color, shape and movement to acknowledge another kind of space. My work elevates the humble cheesecloth.  When married with encaustic it becomes surprisingly malleable allowing for a broad range of sculptural treatments.  The resulting works are abstract representations of urban history that often explores the physical and mental boundaries of public and private spaces we inhabit. 

My decision to push the conventional parameters of the use of the encaustic medium by uniting it with fiber has resulted in innovative 3D forms often employing traditional weaving techniques in a way not previously utilized.  Over time, my sculptures have gone beyond their initial traditional forms and have developed into new forms for expression.  Exploring the infinite sculptural possibilities has proven to be a welcome challenge.  I have developed this process for fiber and encaustic and enjoy improving upon it
