Color is where it happens in the eyes of most and then we look for composition, value and scale,etc.
As with any painter my work reflects my moods through drama, color and composition on today's canvases. Timeless events and places captured from my broad collection of traveled memories.
From an early age I knew art would play a special part in my life because in my family, I was surrounded by artists of every kind. All of them musicians at the least , and my grandfather was a blacksmith that designed ornamental iron. Some of his work can be seen at the museum in Oklahoma City that he had designed for Bob Crosby and Robert H Goddard.
I was a native of New Mexico with a very simple life, and since I was a very small girl, I would draw every chance got. When we would go to pick fruit in the Hondo Valley, and got the opportunity, I watched Peter Hurd painting from a distance which drove me further towards my destiny of art.
I have been in many galleries, museums and wonderful places and studied with the best, including Guido Frick, Emin Abasaav, Mickey Wells, John Darby, Rich Nichols and last not least Jack Sorenson.
