She uses the ancient technique of encaustic to create her paintings and uses heat as a primary element in her process to control beeswax, resin and pigment. On the subject matter of her work, she describes that "My rural surroundings find themselves in my paintings, whether it is a meadow, bird sitting in a tree or some of the farm animals."
ABOUT THE SHOW
This series of paintings celebrate the seed of creativity. A seed remains intact and stagnant until there is someone to plant and nurture it. These paintings reflect this process, recognizing that nothing can be realized without forethought and action. Like this theoretical seed, an idea also needs energy to propel it forward. There will always be missteps and readjustments, frustration and joy; with time and experience, you learn to trust in the process. Eventually, with gentle nudges and a willingness to keep going, something will emerge. You can take a breath and give thanks to that tiniest of seed.
