I discovered encaustic wax at a workshop in Tennessee and fell in love with the textural and visceral aspects of making these pieces. The smell of honey as the wax melted, the textures created by the wax and images floating between the layers are all part of this ancient practice of art making.

This multimedia piece is a wooden laser cut panel taken from a street map of where I lived in a previous life.

It was a beautiful community, but like so many things that you seek in life to make you happy, it turned out to be very isolating  and insular.
