Artist Statement: I love nature; its patterns, imperfection and integration of all surroundings in a given space. As an artist, I want to replicate, embellish, highlight and color these patterns. I express love by creating art that is full of color, texture and luminosity. That is why I have chosen Encaustic wax as my main medium.
