I love exploring the expression of thoughts, experiences and place through abstract paintings. Color, shapes and paint help me communicate when words fall short. The process of art making is blissful and fulfilling, challenging and exciting. My work continues to evolve, and likely always will.
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.
