    Encaustic Studies | 2013

Since early 2007, all of the fiberglass structures have been math generated. I am now slowly beginning to transitioning the math to 2D surfaces by looking for new systems of mapping the math as I get to know encaustics and look for my own voice in mixed media on panel. I view all current 2D works as studies.
