I just wanted to say hi and welcome you to my page. If you are unfamiliar with Patreon, I wanted to break it down for you into simpler terms.

Patreon allows for anyone like you, who maybe do not always have the budget for art, to pay installments through monthly support and being part of my exclusive community. Think of it as joining your public radio station as a sustainer. Each level of support comes with a reward from $1 a month on up to $100. Your short or long term commitment of support, will provide stable income to enable me spend time working in my studio towards my next show in Seattle and continue to grow my business. 

All of my life, I have been a visual artist and cannot imagine doing anything else. I am continually compelled to express my curiosities and understanding of the world around us in the form of art. Art enriches our lives and I am so thankful to all of those in my community who have added some of my art to their lives.

In 2002, I purchased my home which fortunately came with a newly built garage. Over the years, my home and studio has grown into a creative compound that I now call "Wagnerica". I have been happy to host students and Airbnb guests from around the globe as well as rent my cellar studio to a painter creating a "micro" art community here. My home and studio in Portland, Oregon is zoned commercially in an area undergoing tremendous development. I can build on my land here and dream of one day having even more "macro" creative activity happening here at Wagnerica. Become a Patron to help make this dream come true! I am currently raising funds for my intro video so, for now, the slideshow above is of my world, my home and studio "Wagnerica", before and after.

I work in the ancient medium of encaustic; a combination of natural beeswax, pigment and resin. My paintings are inspired by the wonders of science; astronomy, physics, the celestial and most recently, the receding glaciers. I have found that I am working within a paradox; creating images of receding ice using molten beeswax and fire that reflects our warming planet.

I also innovated a way to make limited edition monoprints from the texture of encaustic wax through the creation of collagraphs. I teach the unique technique in my studio in Portland, Oregon and at printmaking facilities throughout the country. By joining my community, you will get to see the most up to date work in progress and be a member of my exclusive community.

Seven years ago, I took the leap and quit my day job. I so far have defied the myth of "don't quit your day job" and have been able to support myself as an artist throughmaking encaustic paintings, prints and by teaching. I am also an Airbnb host which enables me to host students who come from all over the country and the world the study with me. I juggle a lot to support my dream to live and to do what I love each day. It is because I have been blessed with a wonderful community of friends, art lovers and students who have fostered the continuation of my life as an artist. 

Thank you for considering being a part of my community! Take a moment to peruse some of my reward tiers and see which one would be right for you. You can cancel at any time!
