My mission is to create dynamic, vivid, and darling artwork that inspires ideas about the world people see around them. Just as we must live in a "real" world and in the world of our minds and imaginations, my work interlaces what I see and what I imagine. I strive to find the link between reality and my  inner being. The use of encaustic paint makes possible the exploration of multiple layers of translucency. I often weave heads into the layers of wax that become part of the tapestry of what I reveal or conceal. The essence of my painting lies with the evolution and intensity that emerges on the blank surface before me. The constant transformations that occur over the course of creating inspire me to observe the extraordinary in the ordinary.
