Egg Tempera

Egg Tempera is a medium for painting that pre-dates the Renaissance and oil painting.  Egg Tempera is created by mixing raw pigment with egg yolk, vinegar and water. This style has been highly popularized and influenced by the late Andrew Wyeth. I have been painting with Egg Tempera for twenty years, and find that its transparency and richness of color allow a nuance and range that enables me to capture light and the distillation of objects and buildings within an ever-changing landscape.  My training as an artist and architect inspires me to explore the rich terrain between the built and the unbuilt environment, the pasteurized versus the wild landscape, and the blurred line between our creations and the natural world.
