Featured in Artists Universe November 2011

My grandmother once had a garden so pretty… so full and crowded with LIFE; I often got lost in its beauty… singing… twirling… dancing and feeling free to be silly if I wanted to!

This is a digitally edited version of my original encaustic collage painting called More Flowers in the Field . The original is made from a handpainted watercolor paninting enhanced with pastel and oil pastel; then repainted again with 7 layers of pigmented and non-pigmented wax.

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.
