"Painting my inner cosmos..."
Transparent, translucent and opaque colors combine in complex surfaces of shape and texture to express the boundlessness of life.
I have been a full-time professional artist for over thirty years. In the late 70's and 80's, I exhibited large semi-abstract watercolor landscapes widely in galleries, was collected by major corporations, worked with art consultants,and became a Dolphin Fellow of the American Watercolor Society.
In New Mexico, my medium shifted to acrylic, and my paintings gradually became more representational as I continued to exhibit landscapes both regionally and nationally.
Ten years ago, my long-time interest in abstraction led to the colorful paintings that are my current focus. The work has evolved from a more geometric format into the loose expressions of my current work.
I began to represent myself as an independent artist in 2004, showing with the Santa Fe Society of Artists spring, summer & fall, and at my studio in Pojoaque.
"Celebrating the diversity of women's beauty...."
My sculptures concern the boundless beauty of the female form - the gesture, line, and subtle musculature make a singular expression of a unique non-objectified human being.
I have been a sculptor for seven years. I work from life. creating the clays and waxes, leaving the mold-making, casting & finishing to others.
I have been showing and selling my sculpture, now up to 15 works, since 2009, at the outdoor art shows of SFSA, here in Santa Fe, and through this website.
Throughout my years as a artist, I have drawn regularly from life, creating expressive portraits of individuals. I currently teach adult beginning drawing in my studio by appointment and create custom watercolor portraits.
