Indigo

I work with Indigo, a living dye, often incorporating encaustic, acrylic or mixed media. My approach is to coax the dye to dance upon the canvas or panel, manipulating the process to produce designs organically, letting the natural beauty of the Indigo speak for itself.

Artist's Choice

Sometimes everything coalesces to deliver results both unique and extraordinary. Paintings awarded the distinction of "Artist's Choice" are branded with a wax seal on the back and come with a certificate.

Angel in Indigo

Indigo, Encaustic and Resin on Board. 14" x 14" 2016 ~Artist's Collection~ Focus on fluidity of movement during wax application allowed for a delightful emergence of form after the board enjoyed a lengthy interaction with the dye, which produced some of the deepest, richest indigo blues yet. The bold, strong depth of color provides the perfect backdrop for the 'figure' to dance upon.
