I paint in the unique medium of encaustic, creating textural art pieces which incorporate representational form
with the printed word. In essence, the visual and written
symbols merge to create a unique aesthetic language that is
both provocative and whimsical. My multiple-image pieces, with images ranging from polka dots to popular culture, evoke emotions and memories in the viewer. The combination of images tells a story and provokes a personal exchange
between the art and the audience
See that giraffe painting in the back?
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Friends, I've made prints of it so you can be as HAPPY as Ross & Rachel and have cool art like them.
