Experimenting with mixed media

After my amazing summer with Wendy Maruyama, I realized the value of experimenting, of playing with different techniques, of letting it all out and just having fun.  What follows are some of my most recent experiments.  They range from encaustics to linograph to paper making.  I will use many of these techniques in my pieces this semester, so stay tuned. encaustic wax over maps interwoven with wood veneer
