As a painter, my primary motivation is to create something I have never seen before. This continual push to find expression, surprise, and delight with wax on wood and paint on canvas is what powers my work. Color, line, shapes, layers, transparency, and even mistakes are all language I use, all elements that make a painting interesting and unique. I delight in melting the wax, moving it quickly across the wood panels, fusing the wax with a blowtorch, scraping and carving the wax, and drawing with wax pencils. Equally wonderful is feeling oil paint move on canvas, using a palette knife, a brush, oil sticks, spatulas, and other odd tools.
This past year, I learned encaustic painting, an ancient technique of painting with hot wax.  My summer was spent painting in my old barn on the coast of Maine.  It was all a wonderland.
