Awards and Recognition
I am constantly inspired by the beauty of nature and the extraordinary and often times, fleeting moments when animals and wildlife interact with one another or the sun lights up the trees in a way that can’t be predicted, or imagined. I strive for what I call “close encounters” with the beauty of the world that surrounds us and photography is an important first step in my process. I find beauty in many different things and do not restrict myself to any particular subject matter, relying on my emotional response to what I see.
I work in Oils and Acrylics and describe the work as Contemporary Realism. I am a daily painter and enjoy painting miniatures to large scale pieces and often intentionally opt for alternating to the opposite size as a way of staying balanced and challenged.
I am a member of the Rio Grande Art Association and NM Art League. I currently have art on display at the Gathering Artist’s Gallery, Bernalillo,NM, the Romero Street Gallery, Old Town Albuquerque, The Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Tx., and the Rainmakers Resort, Ruidoso, NM.
My art education includes college level coursework and numerous workshops over a 40 year period.
