The Hidden World

40"x40" mixed media encaustic on 2" deep cradled wood panel


There was something about all the major shifts happening in the world in recent times that pushed me to dig deeper into myself to get in contact with the truest essence of what inspires me to create.  It felt important to keep showing up despite the swirling energies of fear and doubt and to distill the sources of peace, truth, and beauty that shape my days. 


I wanted to get back to my early days of creating with encaustic when I made my own paints using powdered pigments, beeswax, and damar resin so I gathered up my supplies and made a batch of paints especially for this series. This particular piece is incredibly layered and is an exploration of the imagery of nature that grounds me. The spontanous process of feeling my way around the painting, leaving marks and gestures in an intentional, yet free flowing manner created a patchwork of color and movement. There are vintage crocheted lace bits, collaged words from an old player piano roll, antique and handmade papers, gold and copper leaf, and image transfers of my pencil drawings. Carved, scraped back, built up and refined over a two month  period, this painting is truly stunning and will provide endless discoveries with all of the fine detail, texture, and transparency.


Comes wired and ready to hang for years of enjoyment!
