I never know what will happen next in the creative process and I love the element of discovery when using new materials. In more recent work I have used patina copper and encaustic with textured materials so that I can achieve a sculptural form on my two dimensional base. Encaustic has been a challenge until I discovered pouring the wax and adding oil colors were just what was needed to make the materials more to my liking. Strangeness and surprise in some proportion is what I like in the creations of art.
