Oil Painting, Pastel Painting and Encaustic Wax
I am a full-time artist working in oil paint, soft pastel and Encaustic Wax. I predominantly work with the human figure and still life exploring the effects of light and color to capture the emotion of a particular moment. Recently, I am experimenting with Encaustic wax creating an opportunity to explore history through photography, text, color and design. My work has been juried and received awards in exhibitions including those of: The Northeast National Pastel Exhibition, The Degas Pastel Society, Richeson’s 75 International, Connecticut Pastel Society, The Pastel Society of Northern Florida, Southern Allegheny Museum of Art, Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts and Art Alliance of Central Pennsylvania. I reside in State College, Pa with my husband Rick and daughter Arina.
