Artists bio available upon request

My journey into fine art has been a progression from my work in graphic design. It slowly changed from design to illustration and then into fine art. It actually began years before I recognized it with the fascination I had with vintage photography. From family heirloom photos and faces or images that called to me from open field flea markets. Each image has a story to tell. My greatest joy in creating is discovering that story and bringing the past and present together. I try to incorporate that throughout the art I create. Salvaged wood and traditional gessoed panels, vintage photography and ephemera, merge with modern technology and new imagery and then back again into layers of encaustic beeswax. The end result is a fusing of time and imagery to tell a new story.
