This series captures the ephemeral moment—and emotions—of morning in different places. The spontaneity of morning, and the potential of that spontaneity to make us think and feel in new ways, is the central idea I aim to explore. In this collection, I make greater use of encaustic in order to replicate the “watercolor” feeling of the start of the day, when memories and emotions are impressionistic and fresh.


Encaustic is a process-intensive medium dating back over two millennia. Invented by Greek painters in Ptolemaic Egypt, encaustic refers to the melting and fusing of natural beeswax and resin to a photographic surface. The process is highly archival and is particularly notable for its luminosity.
