Teaching Philosophy

My drawing is an appreciation of the life, personality, spirit and beauty of humanity. Rough charcoal lines beneath layers of diaphanous color describe the figures in environments, evoking a personal narrative. We become voyeurs, peeking at protagonists through a magic colored window. The “back and forth” of additive collage imagery, the carving, and coloring of wax marries with encaustic’s mysterious depth and transparency to add a frisson of excitement to the still and quiet worlds before us.
