Classically trained as a realist painter, her work is meant to echo her fascination with the passage of time, our journey through it, and the complex and fragile layers of our existence. Known for her exquisitely painted, intensely lyrical art, her style and subject matter are strictly her own, yet her constant experimentation keeps her work fresh and magical. With her mixed media pieces, in particular, she reflects an astonishing ability to invoke both mystery and clarity.
Having lived in Santa Fe since 1993, she has conducted workshops throughout the United States for the past twenty years and imparts her passion for art to her students while teaching them the solid skills that are at the heart of her own work.
She is proficient in oil, acrylic, encaustic, and bronze, and she frequently combines them for maximum effect. Her work has appeared in many publications, such as the New Mexico Millennium Collection, and she has shown her work in galleries, museums, and invitationals (including Sorrento, Italy), and has garnered many awards and other honors. Her work is represented in many distinguished private collections worldwide, and she is a published poet and has produced two instructional art videos.
