I use diverse combinations of materials when making my work. I combine textiles, digital embroidery, collage and machine stitching into my Encaustic and Cold Wax Oil Paintings. This gives the work a visually complex, tactile surface.

Process

Embroidered images and motifs are images are stitched out right onto the encaustic paintings.  This

The embroidered images are my drawings, which I program into stitch-able files and they, along with motif stitching lines, are sewn directly into the paintings.
