I have always loved to draw. Like most artists, I look and take in what’s around me. For the past six years, I have been working in encaustic (hot wax) painting. Painting in encaustic highlights the lines and tonal quality of my charcoal drawings of the figure and nature. Up close, I see the texture on the surface, further emphasized by oilstick on the drawn lines and brushstrokes. Adding collage elements gives more texture, dimension and depth to the paintings. My drawing is an appreciation of the life, personality, spirit and beauty of humanity and nature.
