I think a lot about breathing, such an ordinary yet magical experience. An inhale is my saying a resounding "yes" to life. My exhale allows me to release what no longer serves me. I like that this simple act becomes a conscious metaphor that speaks to me over and over. The space I like best, though, is between breaths...the fertile place of no longer, but not yet. It is here in the rich place of possibility and promise that creative play happens.
I am drawn to paper and wax, simple mediums with huge voices. I am intrigued by the language of personal mark-making that becomes haunting under layers of encaustic, oil and mixed media. With both written and video demonstrations, my workshops make these materials accessible and adaptable to those who want to learn something new or want to deepen their own practice.
If you are one who breathes life deeply, I welcome you into my studio, a space where creative spirits can breathe and become.
Come work with me!
