I am a stalker, a shadow stalker. I am obsessed with shadows and their enduring duality. I look for them everywhere whether it is in a cumulus cloud, next to a roadside post, or in the craggy corner of a marsh. I study their duality: how the brightest light is always next to the darkest dark. I watch shadows move and morph into new shapes, notice their new gradations, and eventually say good-bye to them as they disappear. It is the shadow that keeps me experimenting with new mediums, especially with encaustics and oils. My work is an interpretation of the life of a shadow. I hope to capture and share with the viewer that split second moment, where the shadow offers us all of the light and all of the dark. Most importantly, my work aims to show that within the life of a shadow, light always finds the cracks and seeps into the deepest, darkest places. Always.

If you look closely, vertically, the encaustic base layer has an etching of one of my favorite phrases, “We Hold These Truths”. It seemed like a perfect foundation for holding the excess wax shards and shavings of other works.
