I am an encaustic mixed media painter. I use beeswax, resin and pigment to paint then fuse it with heat to stabilize. I explores the creation stories and constellation myths that are passed down to us. Whether ancient or modern, the same stories are universal then and now, as they have the ability to mirror our own mythologies in the present tense. Similarly working with the medium of encaustic, wax becomes a figurative container for these memories and stories. Wax has several inherent qualities that allow it to withstand the test of time. By encasing these objects within this material, memories have the ability to persist and remain, revealing layers of time as their own brand of relic.
