I am having a second workshop, I am
very excited to be teaching how to work with Venetian plaster and
collage elements, finding your own unique voice using this wonderful
material. Saturday August 6Th and Sunday August 7Th, 10-4 with an hour for lunch. I will be having the
workshop in Saint Francis plaza near the famous San Francisco De Asis
church in the back of the wonderful shop, Velvet and Horns in Ranchos de Taos NM (4 miles from Taos, NM). There is room for 6 people, first come first serve, the last class filled up fast. I will provide
cradle boards and the plaster, some paint and select bits of collage
material. The price will be 95 a day, plus a 20 fee for supplies. Message me on FB or email me (address on sidebar) for more details if you need them and
about payment. I hope to see you there. 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.
