I love to express my feelings about the natural world in acrylics and create mixed media works. The process of art making is blissful and fulfilling, challenging and exciting. I enjoy helping other artists benefit from the world of opportunity to market their art. The marketing career I had after college helps with those efforts.
To say I am self-taught would be an error. For nine years, I was executive director of a nonprofit art education organization for children. I organized workshops where parents and grandparents were trained to teach art lessons in their children’s classrooms. Each workshop began with a background lecture on the artist or genre being studied. Years of attending inspiring lectures and learning about art history and art-making techniques inform my work. Besides taking local art classes, I’ve enjoyed online classes from wonderful artists all over the world.
I am fortunate to live in the charming village of Corrales, New Mexico, which is just north of Albuquerque. The natural beauty of New Mexico’s high desert landscape and crisp, clear light are daily inspiration. New Mexico has a thriving artist community of which I am happy to be a member.
