Contemporary abstract oil painting using repetetive lines to form orbs. Fem is the Danish word for five, but also represents the feminine nature of the egg shape

I am a painter living in Asheville, NC. My current body of work incorporates delicate lines, orbs, and exploration of color relationships. Encaustic paintings are comprised of drawings, imagery, Japanese mulberry paper and tissue paper layered in beeswax, damar resin, and oil pigments. My paintings are heavily inspired by form and pattern found in nature, tranquil horizons from the Michigan lakes and fields of my youth, endless ocean horizons, and the quiet spaces I seek in the midst of our full, hectic, and often messy world.
