Encaustic on Brushes
2011

Over the last twelve years I have been working predominately in wax or encaustic paint while integrating tar, marble dust, pigment sticks, dry materials, graphite, collage and miscellaneous mediums.

My work explores the ritual of layering. I love the sense of the unexpected, the sensation of scent, and the anticipation evoked by moving wax, while also scraping and carving through the wax. Marrying image and medium is what I am most interested in.

My work is redolent of the meeting of sky, sand and sea: and the sense of place. My work is represented by Kobalt Gallery in Provincetown. I am the producer and director of the International Encaustic Conference.

I have my MFA from the State University of New York at Purchase and my BFA from the Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford. I'm the Executive Director of Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill since 2002. I serve on the board of Campus Provincetown, Provincetown Cultural Council, and partners with Highlands Center Inc. for the only Wood-Fired Kiln on Cape Cod.
