This petite homage to Mark Rothko in orange, ox blood, black, and a touch of white delivers maximum impact in a small space. Encaustic painting is an ancient art medium which translated from Greek means “to heat or burn in”. Natural bees wax and dammar resin (crystallized tree sap) are combined to create a medium to which pigments are added. The medium is then melted and applied onto a solid board surface with a brush or tool. Each layer is reheated to fuse it to the prior layer. Art is mounted on a hidden box frame (see photo for details).

Where far above it all she found peace and solitude. Today she finds the same in her studio. Located in rural central Montana -it’s light filled open space inspires a body of work based on color, texture, and mood. Shown in galleries throughout Colorado, Montana, Oregon, Washington her paintings are the manifestation of a life well spent.
