TORCH // BEESWAX+DAMAR VARNISH+PIGMENTS (+MIXED MEDIA)
LADIES & GENTLEMEN...THE SIX OF CUPS
encaustic + mixed media

2019-current

Named after my favorite tarot card, the Six of Cups, this collection-in-progress explores ideas of nostalgia, the passing of time, and the youthful memory of the heart. Essentially, no matter how wise we become, the magic of childhood still lives within us all.

AN UNKNOWN WOMAN
encaustic + mixed media

2018-2019

These pieces are some of my first encaustic work. It was a real treat to toss aside the perfection of scratchboard (my primary medium) and instead accept the beauty of intentional destruction and happy accidents, by way of beeswax and flame.
