 Artist Statement

"The medium of oil encaustic and the expressionistic brush strokes layer the colors from a limited pallet. This technique gives the paintings a luminous quality. As the viewer changes positions or the light of a room changes, so do the paintings. In this sense, the works are alive; they participate in their environment."
