Throughout my life I have experienced many traumatic events which I labor to transform into works of beauty and inspiration for myself and others.
A true child of the southwest, I gain strength and insight from the complex and multifaceted heritage of the region which has been dotted with unique artist colonies and movements of its own. I find inspiration through a variety of spiritual traditions, and cultural reference points and as well as the firm belief of the value of all people.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
I was born in Albuquerque and consider myself a "New Mexico grown artist". I have always experienced a sense of peace and deep connectedness in the presence of nature, particularly, with what my grandmother called the “whispering” ponderosa pines and the generous, cascading applause of yellowing aspen of Flagstaff, Arizona where I spent some of my childhood.
I love traveling throughout the southwest and and have come to rely on the clarifying effects of the open skyline, to trust the ombre desert stone formations for their grounding abelites, and look to the alien, diverse, survivalist desert vegetation which make up the various desert regions of New Mexico and Arizona to inspire the imagination.
Since childhood I have always created objects of gift giving since childhood as well as relying on artmaking as a mode of self-exploration, self-expression, performance, and communication.
I continue to use the principles of “gifting” art to others through my workshops, social justice activism and involvement in both my local and international arts community. I share my insights and help build arts and entrepreneurship community through my role as co host at The Wet Stuff Podcast and also live on Facebook.
A participant in the Prison Creative Arts Program and Creative Catalyst, I increasingly rely on art making, collaboration and critique as a means of forming connection, community, growth and healing.
Works shown in galleries such as Tortuga Gallery, Mothership Alumni, OFF Center, OT Circus, and the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice. Always an intuitive in my path to artistic growth and creative development, I have self-selected the teachers and influences she feels most relevant to my developing artistic practice including Kerry Dunn, Rachel Powpowcer, Dorielle Caimi, Shawna Levenson and the mentorship of Sean Wells as well as committed involvement with my local arts community including alliances formed through local arts group Coffee and Creatives.
