Demonstration:

I will be demonstrating the ancient art of painting with molten beeswax on wood. The wax is mixed with damar crystals and pure pigments and then brushed on the surface and heat sealed with each layer. The process is known to be more than 2,000 years old from Greco-Roman Egypt and more durable than oil paints.

Directions:

Downtown Port Townsend, on Taylor Street, between Washington and Water Streets. On the same side as the Rose Theatre: 211 Taylor Street – Mount Baker Bldg., 2nd Floor, Suite 7. An elevator is available.

Artist Statement:

What I’m looking for could best be described as a welcoming space, a place to be drawn into.

It is geographical, but pulled to the extremes between inner and distant space, tempered by time and memory.

Studio is open by appointment during the remainder of the year.
