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 the Celtic triskele form, made by using an apparently irreplaceable metal bookmark as a stencil--until I wore it out.  I also began to use tiny plastic baby figures as the little faeries for the first time in a cold wax mixed media triptych, On A Somewhat Less Altruistic Note....  Flower Faerie paintings followed, as well as a few seed-pod or leaf (that is, faerie-free) mixed media paintings.

Tom Akawie taught basic airbrush and encaustic techniques when I in his classes at SFAI, and afterwards I learned how to add cold wax emulsion to my mixed media work thanks to Hifumi Ogawa, whose artworks have been represented by the Hess Collection, Catherine Clark Gallery, and the SFMoMA Rental Gallery.
