Artist's Statement

Floating and hovering images repeatedly appear in my encaustic work.  I like when illusions are created simply by choosing a particular color or by selecting an unusual vantage.  The swim paintings, and all water imagery, lend themselves to the encaustic technique in that they are figurative representations trapped within a once fluid state.
