“I am driven to create, so I escape to my studio to savor the fragrance of wax and the texture and rich colors possible with encaustic.
My paintings and sculptures evolve. I build up layers, then scrape them away. Then I add more wax. I experiment and redo until my art reveals my story. I work with encaustic because I am drawn to the glossy surface and its unpredictable nature. I sculpt and paint with a spirit of exploration that I hope the viewer can feel."
Flo's art has appeared in numerous exhibits, on magazine covers, and has been adapted for needlepoint.
