MIXED MEDIA ART

As an artist, what I value the most is the free process of creation. My mixed media work reflects the joy of letting spontaneous intuition guide me through color, shape, and texture pleasure. My medium of choice is encaustic, an ancient painting technique used by the Greeks and the Romans for centuries. Based on beeswax and pigments, the encaustic medium has an unparalleled almost-sculptural quality.
