“I am a contemporary Encaustic artist; my hope is to inspire moments of reflective contemplation. Embracing the echo of tranquility and evoking a sense of beauty in movement in my paintings. I am influenced by places I have traveled, colors of the ocean and dreams that visit me. This series of lyrical seascapes captures the rhythmic ebb and flow of time and emotion that only the water offers.”Shelley Jean
