I am a representational painter working from life using the ancient mediums of encaustic, metalpoint drawing and egg tempera. My hope is to make work that engages the viewer on a deeper emotional level by emphasizing certain visual choices as the paintings progress. The work has a strong abstract underpinning as a foundation for the realistic image that results. As a painter, I am immersed in the possibilities and qualities of the mediums I use in the service of my vision.
