An artistic tribute to the endurance and determination of the human spirit following the 2013 Boston Marathon attack.

Art is healing made visible. Where there is darkness, Art can bring beauty, light and celebration.

"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see."

A quick word from the artist:


Encaustic paintings are unique as they are often described as paintings that are rich in depth, texture and luminousity.

People are intrigued with art that incorporates the encaustic medium since it's lush and mysterious surface draws the viewer in for closer inspection.

Today's curiosity and movement towards wax in the art world is in part due to our attraction to its organic properties.

We are ever so fascinated with nature and our place within it.

Warmest Regards,
