A winter storm this year brought surfers galore to the the water. Surfing is one of the most beautiful sports, and I watched as the surfers carved the waves like a fine sculpture. In this series, I have moved away from the typical expected colors that one sees in a Polaroid and used this special colored film. This photo printed on a fine art paper and then glued it to a piece of birch. Then I begin the process of adding the encaustic wax which I do with a brush and then work with a palette knife until I get it to the point where I feel it is finished. The wax is polished by hand several times until it shines. When finished I have framer use a fine maple frame and float it without glass. The beauty of encaustic wax is that you don't need to cover it with glass.

Photographed by well-known photographers as Helmut Newton, Olivero Toscani and Albert Watson, her shift behind the camera was an easy transition. She gave models movement and posing directions familiar to her, helping launch successful commercial and fashion careers.

As a fine artist she won the prestigious gold award in 2015, Prix de la Photographie (PX3) for her series, “Women as Birds”.
