I create imagined landscapes with lush botanical forms and vibrant colors reminiscent of my childhood home in Hawaii. Working with one of the oldest forms of painting, called encaustic, I layer hot beeswax, pigment and resin together, adding and subtracting layers until I get the look I want. No other type of painting offers such a unique combination of depth, luminosity and texture.

Please join me for my my Open Studio Show and Sale in Portland, Oregon. My smaller framed paintings will start at just $50 with amazing discounts on some of my larger pieces to make room for all the new work I'll make next year. I also have a free Make-n-Take project to help you get introduced to working with wax. This year we'll be making some beautiful layered bookmarks!
