About The Artist

It's about Time.

I use a variety of materials such as encaustic, digital photography, and various types of pigments (ink, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, etc.) to express the passage of time. My work is informed by objects that are forgotten, cast aside, rusted, broken, worn, and weathered by natural erosion or from human use.  I am inspired by ephemeral mark-making, open-ended, and heavily layered and reworked surfaces.

Much of my work process includes scratching and layering marks, either digitally or physically, that refer to abuse, creating dirty surfaces with different pigments or soil and hunting for just the right ephemera to present hints of the subject matter.
