Harnessing the flow of hot wax is like capturing moments in time. Sometimes it feels like drowning in a wave and sometimes it feels like surfing.

What interests me in making art is the underlying elements as opposed to the overriding form. I like dots and grids, squares and swooshes. Sometimes just plain color.

Things look disparate only when viewed on the surface. Underneath, things share a common substance.

I like to work in wax because it immediately refers to its origins as the building material of bee houses. Its smell recalls its original purpose of providing shelter for life and its sweetness.

I wonder how a bee, designed to fly from flower to flower, manufactures a home that looks nothing like itself. Based on a casual observance of its awkwardly bulbous, possibly furry, body transported around by the frantic motions of the flimsiest wings, one would never expect that this creature’s house would bring to mind the propositions of Euclid.

The ancient, primal image of Serpent has been expressed across cultures in a multitude of mediums. Diving into its energy of birth, enlightenment, death, fertility, oneness, protection, re-birth and transformation is a journey into a relationship with timeless, expansive source energy.

Serpent is a primary, recurring theme in my artistic expression. I am heavily influenced by my relationship with the land of Galisteo, as well as interactions with Serpent Mound in my home state of Ohio and the kundalini energy of the yoga I teach.
