More than thirty years of experimentation has taught me how little I know about the complexities of making my mark on a surface. Guided by my curiosity to learn, I find myself on a continued quest for a greater understanding of what my materials and tools can do for me. 
 
My work, available here for viewing, is an expression of integral partners — thoughts, observations, humor and color — spanning back to 1999, when I immigrated to the United States. I hope you enjoy what you see. 
 
Comments and feedback on my work are always welcome. Please don’t hesitate to contact me to let me know what you think!

 

​Encaustic Mixed Media:​

I have long admired art made using encaustic techniques but had little experience of working with hot and cold waxes until early 2010. As a fairly recent inclusion in my body of work, wax is used in a combination of mixed media and pure encaustic applications.

Acrylic Mixed Media:

 

Since 2001 I have explored the abundant possibilities that using acrylic has to offer in my artwork; my admiration was nurtured during the many years I spent working with Golden Artist Colors. I am ever thankful for the thorough education I received from them in the diverse nature and application of this medium.

Silk Paintings:

 

After graduating from art school in 1988 I was introduced to silk painting as a less time consuming method of designing fabric. 25 years later it still captivates me as a medium to work with and is now included in many of my acrylic mixed media pieces.

Digital:

Rather than view the use of digital media as the end of painting as I know it, I find digital media provides me with almost limitless possibilities to sketch, manipulate and collage images for future physical work. Included in this selection are a few of those sketches and montages.
