2011-2014 Paintings

These pieces are all mixed media encaustics, most of which are from my Folklore series, in which I explore themes and imagery from various fairy tales, folklore and mythology from many different cultures.  Some are directly inspired by specific stories, others are amalgams of imagery from various tales. (Under Construction – more will be added).
