The encaustic medium is magical, vibrant and translucent.  My creative muse guides, inspires and feeds my soul through this medium, mixed media and collage.  Blessing me with endless moments of creative joy and harmony...providing those ahhaa moments about life.  Join me on this creative journey, spend some time reading my musings about this life, the blessed other souls that come into contact with mine, however brief or often, that can leave everlasting imprints on our journey....perhaps our lives might share some similarities, bringing us closer and more connected...and less isolated.

"I suppose there is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one's self, the very meaning of one's soul." ~ Edith Wharton

Here's to finding those expansive moments.....

"Wax Libris" Exhibit - June 5-7, 2009

"Guest House - Rumi Inspired",  Altered Encaustic Mixed Media Book, 2009 6 1/4 x 9 x  1  1/2 

"Ah, What Then?" Altered Encaustic Mixed Media Book, 2009, 5  1/4  x  7  1/2  x  1  1/4 

I was so delighted to receive the confirmation that my art submissions for the "Wax Libris" exhibit at the Montserrat College of Art, in Beverly, Mass. was accepted.   "Wax Libris" is a small but tantalizing show curated by Joanne Mattera, also the conference director for the Third Annual Encaustic Conference in June at the college. 

The premise of this show, exhibiting at the Paul Scott Library on the first floor of Hardie, is to celebrate "the tangibility and materiality of books" which remains a deeply satisfying and integral medium within the electronic information age we are living in...This exhibit will feature handmade books, altered books, book object and two-dimensional works visual or textual narrative.  

Participating artists include:  Jeanne Borofsky, Cari Hernandez, Supria Karmakar, Julie Shaw Lutts, Cherie Mittenthal, Catherine Nash and Daniella Woolf.  This exhibit will run for the duration of the three-day conference, June 5 - 7, 2009.  I feel honoured that my work has been included in this wonderful concept for a show.  It is a fantastic way to bring the love of books and art together so beautifully and in celebration of the tangible text, there is nothing like finding a great book and falling deeply in love with the words, the message, the story...essentially it's magic.
