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 or the sloughs near Everett, Washington
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—using a torch to fuse layers of melted beeswax on a mounted photo and then adding oil paint, oil pastels and mica powder for extra texture and richness.
