About

My life as an artist is divided into two very different and yet highly related sides, as a sculptor/painter, and as a commercial interior designer. The fields are mutually beneficial and enriching... my Interiors work has a very sculptural aspect, and my art is enhanced by years of thought about color, material and texture. In recent years I have become particularly enamored with encaustic (hot wax) for the inherent sculptural and expressive qualities of the material, in particular the skin-like tactility of the surface, whether smooth, pitted, scarred or molded, and the soft glowing translucency of the built-up layers.
