I believe creating art is my best means of communicating and reflecting the world around us. I love creating work to bring joy to others and to transform the spaces they live, love, and work in.
My muse is found in the immeasurable beauty of nature herself. My response is to create works that reverberate the emotional connection of being in inspiring places, whether near the Rio Grande River and Sandia Mountains of New Mexico where I live - or places I travel to.
Years ago, while still practicing as an interior designer, I began working in watercolor and exhibiting my art in the Midwest. Later, I followed my dream to move to the Southwest and studied at the University of New Mexico at Taos, and the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe to hone my love of printmaking.
As a life-long creative explorer, I continually improvise and innovate by combining different printmaking techniques, including collagraph, woodcut, etching, and monotype.
