"Catapult 2" (with tail) - a large scale encaustic collage.
The Catapult Series is a result of my love for structure and organic elements in my artwork. Free-flowing encaustic prints with hand done mark-making, combined together in horizontal and square formation.
"Catapult with Tail", a large scale encaustic collage.
I began printmaking with wax and paper after taking a 2012 Encaustic Printmaking workshop in Santa Fe with Paula Roland. I was totally captivated by the intuitive and fast process. I found myself tucking away certain prints that I knew wouldn’t be framing material, but I was bound to them by my inner voice. The atmospheric quality makes me take an extra deep breath. With the Catapult Series, I am incorporating these atmospheric images – sometimes left alone, sometimes with mark-making added with black and white india ink, and metallic inks as well. My love of patterns and textures, even if subtle are shining through. It feels very good to follow that voice.
