All about my journey in encaustic art and cold wax and mixed media.

There's a time where we all find ourselves on the edge. Turning points where we must decide to take the road less traveled or stay the course. I seem to encounter them roughly every 5 to 8 years and feel the need to find a new adventure. It's what brought me to the mountains almost 7 years ago and it's what is pulling me back now. Having discovered my muse in the encaustic media, I came to western NC where my desire to be an artist would be nurtured...by the natural surroundings, the supportive community, and the time to immerse myself in it all. These have been productive years and I have been blessed to call myself an artist and find validation in both the sales of my art and the over a hundred students I have taught now. So why do I find myself on the edge now? Family and health...two very good reasons to relocate and it is only now that I feel confident in defining myself as an artist no matter where I plant myself. And that is a very good place to be...even if I am only on the edge right now.
