My WRITE DESIGN COMBINE process is key to starting new works. I first start with note taking, word lists, story creation, then move on to designing, using graphics, media, typography and color to communicate the story. Finally, I combine all the elements with collage techniques to create the composition and achieve the visual goal.
I choose to use wax as one of my media to symbolize timelessness. The wax is a malleable texture that represents changing circumstances and offers a rich medium that can be carved, painted or shaped. I work acrylic and oil crayons into the wax painted surfaces, using fleeting imagery and color to communicate expressions of whispering moments.
