Art of Nature


Taupo, New Zealand


During a trip to Lake Taupo, our family visited Orakei Korako Thermal Park. 
This experience was both stunning, soothing and so unique. This particular geothermal formation was my favorite of all for it’s spectacular color palette. 
For an entire view of this wonderland, see my Instagram story or “thermal” highlight.

I create each Encaustic Photography panel with my original fine art photographs, beeswax and pigment.  Each art piece is created from start to finish by hand in my home studio.  Encaustic Photography panels are able to be placed on a shelf or hung on a wall with just a nail or two.  If you don't see the size you'd like, I am happy to customize both Encaustic Photography and Fine Art Print sizing for you.

Ready-to-Hang Choice
  • Print Details

     All prints are created with Professional, Archival Photographic paper to last a lifetime. I offer two paper choices:

    ~ Matte Paper with a beautiful, smooth and lusterless surface 

    ~ Metallic Paper with a three-dimensional, high definition quality with a stunning pearlescent finish.


    Fine Art Prints are measured in inches and may not include borders, unless requested, up to size 14x21".  Larger prints will be borderless.


    Please note that all square print sizes will be cropped to suit best composition for each image, as shown in preview. 


    *** Please note, prints larger than 14x21 are printed in a professional lab that I've trusted for years.  Photo transfers larger than 14x21 will also be printed locally, but will be hand transferred by me in my studio with the same process as smaller sizes.  

  • Photo Encaustic on Wood

    Photo Encaustic on Wood - Ready To Hang - No Frame Required


    Made using my original fine art photography, I transfer every photograph by hand onto each panel. Created using the same care and archival inks as my fine art prints. Each photograph is transferred onto deep cradled artist panels which are made in the USA with sustainable birchwood. These transfers require no framing, can be placed on any shelf, table or hung on a wall with just a nail or two. 


    Each photograph is transferred and painted with clear encaustic medium and when a piece calls for, encaustic pigment is mixed throughout.  Each piece will vary between smooth through dimensional, each with resulting in a sensual artpiece, no two versions will be alike. 


    Made in the USA from sustainable forest products that ensure the protection of wildlife, plants, soil, and water, the panels are formaldehyde-free and contains no harmful volatile organic compounds.


    Photo transfers and encaustic art has been a passion of mine for many years. In the past, I have worked with polaroid emulsion transfers, but I craved larger works of art. I began creating these photo transfers onto cradled wood boards and made my first piece for my daughters nursery and they have been shown in Boston's OKW Gallery.
