Laughing Spirits

When the spirit laughs.......the heart is filled with joy.................................

In the words of the artist...

Having lived my entire life in the high desert of New Mexico, I am continuously surrounded by the larger than life landscapes and colors of the mountains and desert. Our clear blue skies are the topic of many a poet and songwriter. There really is no way to explain them to someone who has not seen them. But the wonders of nature's beauty have given me the vision to produce a continuing collection of works for over 35 years. At this time I am combining the many styles and media that I have worked with over the years.

My work is best described as layered colors and textures. My years as a weaver left me with a sense of texture and a knack for combining colors to make patterns and to expand the color range of a few threads of color. I also spent many years producing serigraphs that were layers of opaque color built up to produce textured images. The pieces I am doing now are a more dimensional endeavor.
