Water-related images 
have intrigued me since my student days at Art Center College of  Design in California. On calm days you may find me photographing from a kayak around Fisherman’s Terminal in Seattle. In the winter I spend time in the Turks and Caicos scuba diving and photo-graphing conch spirals. 
It has only been in the last few years that I’ve left the arena of art education and spiraled back to full-time studio work.

My images are most often a combination traditional painting techniques and photography. In my current work I am exploring encaustics.  I fuse layers of melted beeswax on the photo, along with oil paint, oil pastels and mica powder for added texture and translucency.
