encaustic: Sermon in Stones
Geological abstract depicting the beauty of a magnificent ridge of stone like a cathedral steeple reaching to the heavens. We cannot say we love the land and then take steps to destroy it for use by future generations. —John Paul II. Titled taken from Shakespeare's As You Like It.

I’m a mixed-media painter who draws inspiration from my intense passion for the geometry, patterns, colors, and textures of nature. Nature is my sanctuary, where I catch my breath and meditate on the spiritual bond I experience when I’m totally immersed in its beauty. It’s this deep personal connection and the childlike wonder of our natural world that I wish to share with others to motivate them to cherish and preserve the environment that I hold so dear to my heart. My work is created using encaustic paint (beeswax mixed with damar resin) and oils mixed with cold wax, which allows me to express the actual intensity, fluidity, and various textures found in natural environments. Using custom-made paint and additional sculptural manipulations of the wax, no two pieces will ever be the same. My paintings are meticulous in the use of color and textures, inviting the viewer to dig into the layers of material hidden in these surfaces and encouraging personal exploration.

oils and cold wax: To Melt Myself Away in Water Drops
Geological abstract depicting Great Falls Park in Northern Virginia. This iconic local sanctuary holds special meaning to me as a place expressing the true power of Nature's dynamic movement that energizes and restores. Mixed media includes oils & cold wax and water-soluble encaustic paint. Titled

oils and cold wax: Color Shift
This abstract depicts a color shift in nature as the seasons change in a urban setting. The painting's color palette of vibrant primary shades imbues it with a lively energy of the city, creating both movement and a sense of place.
