Philosophy: I believe that art requires some evidence of change- a new perspective, a new technique or medium-these things can initiate change, and a transformation of style. I think that the creative process is actually a way of life, not just a way to make art. The process takes us from inspiration to action. You have to find a home for all of those ideas bouncing around in your head—art is concrete evidence of a particular inspiration. The stuff that stirs your imagination urges you to create. These ideas are transformed, by working with hands & eyes, into a particular image—ideas are given a home in paint, paper and ink.
Techniques & Media
Encaustic, Collage/mixed media, egg tempera, wood cut prints
Style: Eclectic, layered, scattered. I like to incorporate different styles and mediums, and if an artist’s style is to be fresh I think it is important to include transformative tools.
I was born in Alaska, on the northwestern coast at the edge of the Bering Sea. I spent my early years there. Since then I have lived in Connecticut, Illinois, Washington state, Alaska for a few more years, and then to Pennsylvania, where I have been in one place for a very long time.
