I work in encaustic mixed media. I paint with beeswax, resin and pigment and then fuse with heat. I explore the nature of myth which is universal and mirrors our own mythologies in the present tense. Wax enables them to persist, revealing layers of time as their own brand of relic.
Urania- She was the daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne and the great granddaughter of Uranus. She keeps her eyes and attention focused on the heavens and she is able to forecast the future by the alignment of the stars. She is known as the goddess of universal love.
