Making art becomes meditation when creativity takes over your mind in constant search of personal satisfaction. The process is exciting and fulfilling. It is fun to erase everything I have been exposed to in order to allow my inspiration and spontaneity to create art.

A narrative thread runs through the layers of oil and cold wax in my paintings, and storytelling is their soul. I urge the viewer to look beyond the surface and discover the stories within.

I started working with encaustic medium, with pigments suspended in bee’s wax, because the material cools quickly and allows me to build up colors and texture. I paint the emotions I feel about the world in my work.

I’m a self-taught artist living in Portland, Oregon. Color pencil is my favorite medium for celebrating my imagination through a dreamlike surrealism; almost like a modern take on portraits and pop-art as if there were no cameras.

Found-image collage offers me infinite content. I see relationships between images and then I’m compelled to coax them into stories with scissors, paper and glue. At last the ultimate cohesion happens—archival pigment prints.
