The work I make today is a constant reminder of what a delicate balance the cycle of life is.  I make work using encaustic, layered with a variety of collage materials and oil paint.  I love the way the wax encapsulates the feathers, leaves or lace and creates a natural depth that one can look into and through.  I love the reflective nature of the wax.  I use wooden panels and combine them in different ways to create a dialog or a narrative the way one would weave a tale to warn those of things to come or how things once were.
