Artist's Description

Encaustic, wax, mixed media, handmade paper, oilstick on panel.

My encaustic paintings can be rugged with the wood support and textural elements, but I retain my focus on the grace of the figure. I have loved re-immersing myself in figure drawing and combining drawing with wax painting adds to my excitement. The effect produced by applying wax to charcoal drawing is that of an image floating on vellum. The “back and forth” of additive collage imagery is married with encaustic’s mysterious depth and transparency. Drawing and carving into the wax with a tool and then applying pigment augments the sense of energy in the brushwork.


A little about my process—- starting with the figure.

I use my charcoal figure drawings as a foundation for my mixed media encaustic (hot wax) paintings. I am thinking about color, activity, energy, motion, texture and the different effects I can achieve by painting in wax.

The process involves heating a support (wood panel) and embedding the drawings in layers of encaustic medium (beeswax and damar resin.) I add color, transparent or opaque, along with other materials (maps, postcards, handmade paper.) This is the same as my approach with all of my collage art—- adding and subtracting, considering what looks right next to, above, or below the material or image. Drawn or carved lines and the texture of the painted wax are enhanced with oilstick (oil paint in solid form.) I consider the color, and weight of tone on the artwork. Throughout the process, with each layer of wax or painting in wax I fuse the painting to the layer below.
