My newest series is called "Small Kindnesses," and they reflect the way that small acts of kindness - a flower, a hug, birdsong, holding hands, speaking truth -- sustain our lives. Though these pieces are small, they are infused with great love and care. My hope is that, as gifts, these paintings will also be small kindnesses that you can share (or give to yourself because self-love is a kindness, too!). This series will be released on October 22, 2019.
Each of my original encaustic paintings is created with much time and attention and is composed of many layers of pure, 200 degree melted pigmented beeswax that I fuse with either a heat gun or propane torch. The fine lines and details are added with a metal stylus. The result is a unique form of art that is both painterly and sculptural.
All original artwork is signed and titled on reverse and fitted with wire for easy, frameless hanging.
