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.....

Inner Works - An Altered Book Collaborative Journey, another round comes to fruition

For Jill's book, Designs in Nature, I chose to work on it using some new techniques I learnt at the Third Annual Encaustic Painting conference...I discovered the beauty of dipping paper from Cynthia Winika's demo at the conference...It is a great way to create delicacy ...I love Jill's theme, designs in nature..as there is so much beauty in nature to inspire creativity.  I have embedded elements of nature that I consider inspirational...flowers, shells, spirals, patterns are everywhere when we look...


Jill's altered book is called "I Lift up My Lamp" and it is about Emma Lazarus, who is pictured above, and her role in bringing about the Statue of Liberty in New York.  For more work by the Inner works collaborative artists visit the blog site here!

Supria, Our whole project has been such a gift for me- could never imagine how it can get any better- and then I see everyone's work and now yours. My book is blessed with the most wondrous and stunning works with such amazing techniques within such beauty. Your work radiates with such attention to every minute detail and meaning. I just finished reading your poem on our InnerWorks blog . It is another light in my day. I must also then say thanks to Nancy Smiler Levinson for originally writing this special book. I can't wait to see, hold, feel and sense all of your artistry. Thank you so much.
