I am a mixed media encaustic painter. I combine old objects that are reminiscent of the past with my own personal history as a way for me to imagine back and have second chance or alternate experiences in life.  At the same time, this allows me to give a new life and a new story to each and every object that I use.  Each piece already has a history, already had a life, and reflecting back on that inspires my art.  I think about who might have owned it, or where it might have been, traveling back in time and ending with the object being given a whole new meaning and significance-- these forgotten memories that may have sat in drawers neglected for decades, now transformed and revitalized.
