I married a naval officer and we traveled to many countries and states . We settled in Oregon a couple of years ago. I started my artistic journey first on the potters wheel then into tile making and designs. When I was first introduced to Encaustics I knew I had found my niche. Painting with fire enables me to introduce my travel experience into my designs. I have started using Cold Wax also. I have been showing and selling at the Fairweather Gallery for several years.
