              Artist Statement

                                           I am the delightful paradox

                                  I seek the unattainable and try the untried

I dance to life’s music with gay abandon

Come with me on my carousel rides

See the myriad of colors…The flickering lights

Hail the unparalled performer

I AM THE TIGER………….anonymous


Encaustic Statement:

 As a member of the Mississippi River Valley Painters & Sculptors  I enjoy sharing  the many facets and forms of working with Encaustics.

It is one of oldest mediums known to the art world. The medium and resulting works has survived thousands of years and will most likely survive thousands more.

The excitement and fluidity of working with purified bee’s wax, pigment and heat gives me a freedom that I have never experienced in any other medium. The possibilities are endless.

Photo he-e-elp!

Does anyone have any hints for photographing your work. (See 'Sentinel' on my page) The reality of 'Sentinel' is FAR more subtle than the pic. It is soft, gentle & a bit mysterious.
 I've done indoor, outdoor, artificial daylight, no light...etc...etc. I don't seem to have a problem with high color works but subtle, softer pieces give me grief...
.I love the piece!....hate the photo :(

Photo Transfer from Helen

Posted on February 20, 2012 at 11:24am 4 Comments


The trick with photo transfers is that the image must be printed using a laser printer or other xerox type printer that uses a toner. That type of printer basically lays the image on top of the paper. Ink jet prints won't transfer. Using a laser print, lay the image side down on a freshly fused but cool encaustic ground and burnish, burnish, burnish until you know you have a good bond. Then take a dampened piece of paper towel and blot the paper, burnish some more,…

I've seen articles on image transfer but I don't find 'photo' transfer mentioned specifically...Am I missing something? I've heard that it is a bit more complex than regular graphics transfer. I feel that a few of you here are doing it....would you share your methods?...plee-e-e-ez 

Testing 1-2-3 etc.

Well, here is my beginning attempt at mono printing (with hot wax, no less) Actually, ‎4th attempt with 140# watercolor paper,  6 x 6 (we won't talk about the first 3.... :D). I did do a lot of rotating this image deciding on which side is up and, sorta, landed on this one. Maybe I'll post the others just so you can share in the process. What I re-e-eally like is that the wax remains fluid as I'm searching my creative soul and impulses. I see why Verlie was so…
