People are curious how I work so I decided to capture the chaos of the process. I work with found objects and currently I am using personal letters my father wrote to his parents during the Korean War. I am preparing a new body of work by coating the letters with melted beeswax (part of the encaustic process) to preserve them. I finally (and fortunately) have a studio to call my own. It is in our unfinished basement, but it looks out onto our gorgeous garden and patio. Shout out to my daughter, Skye, for photographing these.
