The works in the Bundle Series are vessels, reliquaries of a sort that symbolically, and sometimes literally, hold and protect that which I find precious. Some of these things have found their way into the pieces – the bundles are filled with shredded ephemera. They are encased in a protective shell of encaustic, or made up of bits of old clothes, coffee bags, and fabrics.
Encaustic paintings and paperworks.

Scraps of old clothing, mementos of life experiences,
encased in wax
