In all of my explorations in photography, I'm primarily drawn to the wonders of nature; the perfections and imperfections of the world we live in. I've spent countless hours with the majestic bands of wild horses of New Mexico, a place I consider my second home. I've explored fluidity in underwater movement and my latest collection called "Submerged Gardens" depicts a kaleidoscopic interaction between an entirely organic, botanical color palette and the magical play between reflection and refraction.
Encaustics: Nature in Wax & Oil
Encaustic is one of the world's most ancient and permanent painting mediums that has been rediscovered by contemporary artists. The paints are made from pure powder pigment and molten bee's wax is layered atop, making the process unique and seductive. The molten nature of this medium is suitable for layering with oil paint and collaging and imbedding objects into the wax for multi-dimensional effect. Encaustic painting has great texture with a characteristic matte, translucent and velvety surface.
