As Below, so Above is and encaustic monotype, on Japanese paper. The title is a play on/ metaphor for our realtionship with nature. I print with hot wax and pigments on Japanese paper. The marks are lyrical, tender and fragile. It is this vulnerability and beauty that is bestowed on us to take responsible care of.

Deeply inspired by the beauty of flowers and landscapes, I push my subject to a place of gestural abstraction. Sweeping gestures are heightened by bold saturated tones. The process of mark making, color choice, and composition happens mostly subconsciously. It matures to a gestural dance revealing my utmost authentic voice; a dreamlike reconfiguration of emotional meanings. The resulting work is vibrant, complex and meant to make intimate connections with the audience, invoking both my vision and feeling of a world where beauty and vulnerability are the touching keystones.
