This is new work and a new process for me, I have never done anything like this so it pushes my comfort zone a bit. I combined my painting with my found rust and nature things I find hiking . This is a 8"x 8" cradle board, oil, venetian plaster, graphite and rusted wire, and a small antler. This piece will be in an upcoming miniature show at Millicent Rogers Museum In Taos next month.

I always love to know your feelings.
A new year is upon us, I feel open to new possibilities and a renewed passion to my art. I also feel a lack of need to push things or control or make things happen.
Happy New Year! XOXO
I am a painter living in the beautiful moutain town of Taos New Mexico.
I have been painting since I was eight years old when I declared to my mother that I wanted to be an artist. She promptly went out and bought me an oil set. Perhaps not the wisest choice for a child, but it got me started. I have been painting ever since and my way of working and what I paint has changed dramatically over the years. At this point in time I am working with mixed media on board and canvas. Nearly every image starts with a dream, either waking or sleeping. Other subjects that inform my work are literature and nature. Each painting is for me an adventure in color and texture,an exploration of joy and a way for me to get to know myself better. There is always a personal narrative and some hidden message that I am unaware of until it reveals itself in the finished piece. My paintings are about whatever is going on in my life at the time I am painting. My intention when I do a painting is to be true to my authentic voice and perhaps to open someone's heart and mind to all the possibilities around them.
