“I enjoy bringing life to a blank canvas with
colors and shapes, and finding a figure in
a chunk of stone.”
For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed drawing,
painting and doing most anything related to art, from
painting store windows for a Halloween art competition
in high school to art classes through high school and
college. I find I can lose myself in creating beautiful
things. It’s such a wonderful state of relaxation and
joy when you leave the surrounding world and become
immersed in what you’re doing.
I have always primarily worked with oil on canvas; my paintings reflecting my love of Native cultures and celebrations. After years of snowbirding, my husband and I relocated to New Mexico from Connecticut. Now my colors are becoming more vibrant with an emphasis on lighting. I like incorporating geometric or Native designs in my compositions to compliment the faces and figures I paint.
In 2005 and 2008, I attended the Southwest Stone Carving Workshop in Jemez Springs, NM, and found a new medium of expression in limestone, alabaster and marble while working with nationally known sculptors, Rollie Grandbois, Cliff Fragua, Jon DeCelles, Tim Nicola, T. Barney and others.
In Las Cruces I have studied with well-known artists, Julie Ford-Oliver and Carolyn Bunch.
My work has been seen in Southwest Art, Art of the West and Cowboys and Indians magazines.
I am currently represented by Thunder Horse Gallery in Ruidoso, NM.
