It is my hope that you, my viewer will be stirred to feel my pain or find my passion. Perhaps my mental state can in some way touch your own. Making art is the only way I know to search for reason in life's chaos. These pieces attempt to convey emotional places I find in my head. These are encaustic paintings with some oil stick or oil paint. Many are diptychs, triptychs or multi-piece grids. They all speak of mental conditions or states of mind.
