My encaustic work considers the enduring question of what we elect to keep or preserve and the reasons why; and invites reflection on what, or whom, we discard along the way. With its essential process of fusing after application, encaustic painting does not lend itself easily to straight line work. Learning to control this process in my unconventional encaustic work is a challenge I relish. It is a conscious attempt at harnessing wandering thoughts and reframing unspoken absences.
Take Academy St. towards the Village of West Greenville. Turn right on Pendleton St., then left on Draper St., and right on Abney St. My studio is in the two-story white house just outside the gate to the Greenville Center for Creative Arts.
