About The Artist
I use a variety of materials such as encaustic, digital photography, collage 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 abstract surfaces.
My process includes scratching and layering marks that refer to abuse, creating dirty surfaces with different pigments or soil and hunting for just the right ephemera which present hints of the subject matter.
