I like to create beautiful paintings on a small and colorful scale to share!

A self taught artist and I began painting 20 plus years ago with many mediums but loved pastels. Intrigued with encaustic, I explored using it with pastels hoping to free myself from the framing aspect that pastel paintings require. With encaustic, I found I preferred the outcome of painting with gouache, watercolor, oil and ink than pastels. I love the vast possibilities that encaustic painting offers and my work is the exploration of those possibilities.

I like working on a small scale with bright or bold color so these little gems stand out.
The small paintings can be hung in a location like a hallway or small room or wall to grab one’s attention. Another great way to display is in a collage of small pieces together.
