I am a California native living on the beautiful Central Coast of California. I paint evocative, spiritual, tranquil images of everyday life. My artwork embodies the energy, activity, and constant interaction between ourselves, and the world around us.

I have been creating art since childhood. I was far into my adulthood when I saw my first encaustic art exhibit. It was at that moment I finally found my Muse in the medium itself!  I finesse the subject with my brushes and use the power and energy of my torch to let it emerge. I love the texture, hues and depth that is attainable through painting with hot wax. I embrace the challenges that the encaustic medium presents and relish the imperfections that are born from the process.
