Biography


 
Although I have been sketching and drawing my whole life, it wasn't until I became an adult that I began exploring color through acrylics, oils, pastels, and watercolor.  Since then, I have studied under several artists including Fred Miller, Bud Edmondson, Clive Tyler, Albert Handel, and Lorenzo Chavez among others.  After resigning my teaching position in Albuquerque a few years ago, I began painting in earnest.  My work has hung in the Sumner and Dean Gallery in Albuquerque, the Wilder Nightingale Fine Art Gallery in Taos, Purple Sage Galeria in Old Town Albuquerque, and El Zocalo in Las Vegas, NM as well as other galleries and museums around the state.  I have also had the honor of having works included in juried shows of the Plein Air Painters of NM, Masterworks, Miniatures, the Pastel Society of NM Small Works, PSNM National Pastel Show, and IAPS Show (International Association of Pastel Societies). I have been fortunate enough to win awards for watercolor, miniatures, and pastels. I am a member of the Pastel Society of New Mexico, the Plein Air Painters of New Mexico and I am a member of the Camino Real 8, a group of artists in central New Mexico.  I am represented by El Zocalo Gallery in Las Vegas, NM and have an online gallery at http://gwilemon.faso.com/.
 
  
My Goal:As an artist, my goal is to somehow preserve that moment in time that is somehow special--that indescribable beauty that you can't capture with any camera--and to honor our God, the supreme artist, by interpreting His creation in some small way.
