There is something sensual about encaustics that brings you in and makes you aware of the idea it is...
I have this impulse to create a connection and a relationship through my artwork. To create a narrative on the surface and through the wax makes them permanent and vulnerable objects. Thinking of them as an object of “preciousness,” I find sentiment in the dried rose petals from my wedding, rosary beads from my grandmother, broken pieces of glass, and vintage lace from long ago. There is a feeling of tenderness and affection for these objects that move beyond their intended purpose into a representation of something more or long since passed.
