- I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.

Melting Point: Contemporary Encaustic Works 2019
Encaustic, the ancient art that dates back to the Greeks and uses hot pigmented beeswax, has made a resurgence in the art world after a quiet 3,000 year hiatus. This exhibit is a curated selection of artists from the mid-Atlantic who all use encaustic in their work in dynamic ways.
Even with a shared interest in this unique medium, the work itself has a wide range of approaches: from organic to geometric to the narrative and sculptural.
