I am so pleased to announce my commitment to post each and every new work that I create! I have worked as a commissioned charcoal portrait artist in the past and have since moved in the direction of mixed media. Below are 2 mixed media encaustic pieces, Crazy Flower and Abstract 1, I created just this week! For my birthday, my dear mama got me an encaustic class at the Mulnomah Art Center with the multi-talented instructor Jan von Bergen, where I’ve discovered my newest favorite medium. Encaustic allows me even more depth and range in the area of collage, which I fell in love with as a teen.
