At the end of summer 2009, I began drawing messy sketches of homes, and suddenly found myself creating a body of work that explores the idea of “home.” What is home? What does home mean? For some pieces, I chose to work with encaustic because it lends itself to mixed media techniques which are a staple of my artistic practice. The layering effects, changes in opacity, and ability to embed papers add subtle qualities that cannot be achieved through other mediums. Overall, my artwork incorporates rich textures, a range of media, and childlike qualities which reflect my process of responding to the moment and discovering the outcome.
The sizes are deceiving, they vary from 2′x2′ to 1′x1′.
