Updates to Website

I have recently posted all of my work so far from my current ‘Folklore’ series under the “Current Work – Folktale Series (2013-2017)” section on the lefthand side of the home page, and under the “2010-2013 Paintings” subpage, found under “Previous Work” from the home page.  I still have images to post to the 2010-2013 section from the “Tapestry Series”, which was my first series of encaustic paintings, so check back soon!  More to come under “Previous Work” for prior years.

Below are some photos of my summer students with their work.  The teapots were drawn at the beginning of the summer session, before any instruction began.  The chiaroscuro drawings at the bottom are from the last 2 class sessions.  I am so proud of my students!  We had a great time and they all worked really hard to continue to develop their skills!
