I’m fascinated by the ever-changing moods of the natural world. Our reality is created through the various manifestations of the natural elements--earth, water, air, fire and space. The qualities of each element offer a unique way of perceiving--giving us an intuitive feeling about what’s in front of our eyes.
By practicing deep awareness of the present moment, I try to capture the ineffable quality of continuity behind the changing manifestations of the natural world.
Encaustic Wax Monotypes
What I love about working with encaustic wax monotypes is the absolute inability to control outcomes. Melting beeswax crayons on a heated metal plate, I show up as co-creator and do my part, but ultimately Mother Nature herself dictates the outcome. I can embellish and revise, but my input is limited. Ultimately it is up to us to learn to live with and love the consequences.
