    “[A]lchemical moment” speaks to the art of alchemy—the transmutation of the mundane into magic. Cloaked in abstraction, a stark horizon splits the work into two fields, one above the other, and refers to a more spiritual landscape highlighting the energetic alignment of subject to source, but more abstractly represents the link between science and spirituality.

rough luxe

An ever-evolving organic synthesis of mixed media—encaustic (beeswax + damar resin + pigment) a variety of other mediums, recycled materials and found object framework.

Described as “an enchanting collection of work that builds on its textured, yet undefined boundaries to create a ghost-like experience,” this collection of work reflects my draw to the “rough luxe” movement/philosophy. Defined by the Wall Street Journal as ‘artful dissonance’ and ‘a study in contradictions,’ rough luxe perfectly captures the essence of the mixed media and the carefully arranged recycled elements, found object framework and ancient, but contemporary medium of encaustic.
