I create imagined landscapes with lush botanical forms and vibrant colors reminiscent of places I've loved, like my childhood home in Hawai'i and my current home in the Pacific Northwest. It has always been a priority for me to live close to inspiring natural areas because of the impact it has on my work and my state of mind.

Being surrounded by such beauty has always had a strong influence on the colors, textures, and forms that I incorporate into my paintings. I feel the pull to paint my impressions of these places even when they are just a warm memory on a cold day. I translate these memories into layers of color, text and texture, capturing moments suspended in time.

Working with encaustic wax, one of the oldest forms of painting, I layer hot beeswax, pigment and resin together, adding and subtracting layers until I get the look I want. No other type of painting offers such a unique combination of depth, luminosity and texture.

I teach studio workshops in Oregon and online encaustic classes that you can access anytime and anywhere.

Please join me for my spring studio party on April 21! I'll be showing my latest encaustic paintings plus smaller originals, framed prints and note cards that make perfect gifts. You'll also be able to register for my studio classes and buy gift cards for your friends and family. I'll be doing an encaustic painting demo at 2 pm, so if you've always wanted to work with wax, this will be a fun introduction. There is no charge for this event and as always, kids are welcome. Please feel free to bring your friends too!

If you can't make it to this one, join my mailing list for notifications about these private parties.
