I am a journalist turned artist, who found love in the strangest places: Printmaking, Encaustic Painting and Photography. My early artwork in printmaking explored the underbelly of society, as I did as a writer. Then, I developed diverse approaches, depending on the medium. While painting with hot encaustic wax, my esthetic concerns shifted to unusual shapes, shadows, repetition and abstraction, or whatever I could bring forth with a heat gun, such as turbulent waves of color. As a photographer, I could both document what I saw as ethnic people and their colorful surroundings, but also be drawn to light, shadows and abstraction. Love, as we know, is strange.
