I am a self taught Encaustic artist who returned to my home town of Jersey City, New Jersey in 2012 after a 23 year absence. I approach art intuitively without any plan or scheme with each piece telling me where it needs to go.
I fell in love with the ancient form of Encaustics using beeswax and damar resin in 2013, as my hobby of candle making took me to a place I’d never been before. I have found my creative spirit in what is sometimes called a Lost Art..
