My artistic journey began decades ago and has evolved over many years. I trained at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago as a figure painter / sculptor and whilst there discovered beeswax.
This wonderful material fundamentally altered how I made art, in painting as well as sculpture. I began to experiment with resins, oils, and papers in the search for the perfect encaustic wax as well as to satiate my creative desire. These tests lasted years until I found the right formula and it was then, in 1995, that I began to exhibit my artwork.
This formula is what I continue to use in my paintings to this day. In 2001 I was included in the book “The Art of Encaustic Painting: Contemporary Expression in the Ancient Medium of Pigmented Wax” by Joanne Mattera.
