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.
