The Artist Says:


Painting is something I have a strong need and desire to do. There is something very fulfilling about creating something with your own hands.
 
Here in New Mexico, the light, the colors and the shapes within the landscape are a never-ending source of inspiration for me. These elements are the perfect excuse for me to paint the way I do. Acrylics have become my medium of choice due to the bright colors, fast drying time and durability they offer.
 
From my own reference photos, sketches and sometimes working on site, I try to capture in paint the subjects that catch my attention. It could be flowers, a landscape, a time of day or just the way the light touches certain objects. It is my way of saving memories of things that leave me in awe.
 




Collectors Say:


Your work is so calm and bright. It is like a breath of fresh air (as they say) and makes life a more beautiful place. It makes me ( and others) very happy when we look at it.

This artist does beautiful and engaging work. She really takes the time to do it right. The colors, shading, attention to detail and depth of all her works are just a feast for the eyes. Perfect for any home or office. A purchase that you will value, admire and cherish for a lifetime.

Compelling paintings of the Land of Enchantment. A unique style that borders on the whimsical, captures the beguiling light and color of the artist’s home state, New Mexico. ~ Informed Collector
