I am an abstract painter, interested in colour, light, space and time.

My work is meditative, intuitive and process oriented. For more than a decade, I have been investigating the ancient medium of encaustic which involves beeswax and pigments. I am challenged by the qualities of the wax from the molten to the solid, from hard to fragile and the skin like reference which is appealing to me. Through this medium, I face questions of the controllable and uncontrollable. This process oriented approach of layering the material and fusing the layers together with the help of a heat source are the tools that help me achieve a simplicity which goes beyond materiality and are mainly resulting in colour fields.
