Statement

Two of my early encaustic paintings, Dials (Ascendant), and Rose Faery, were the first to contain real rose petals, after which I started the Flower Petal Faeries. These also feature my first use of the Celtic triskele form, made using a metal bookmark as stencil (until it wore out). I also began to use tiny plastic baby figures as the little faeries; the first time was in my cold wax mixed media triptych, On A Somewhat Less Altruistic Note.... The"Flower Faery" paintings were to follow, as well as a few seed-pod or leaf (faery-free) mixed media paintings.

I owe so much to my art instructors at S.F.A.I., especially Tom Akawie, who taught airbrush and basic encaustic techniques. Later, I learned how to add cold wax emulsion to my mixed media work, thanks to Hifumi Ogawa, whose paintings have been represented by the Hess Collection, Catherine Clark Gallery, and the SFMOMA Rental Gallery, San Francisco, and online at www.NextMonet.com.
