"Enjoy. Don't be afraid
to listen to your inner
instincts which are of
a power far greater
than any of us realize"

Artist Statement

I love New Mexico, its landscape, its people and it's Folk Art. I hope this shows in my paintings. I love adobe architecture and I like to paint beautiful native women, approaching their church or their adobe under a blazing sun in vibrant colors.

Formerly I lived in Las Cruces, NM for 50 years. I was in two galleries and was director of one. I had a clothing design business in Historic Old Mesilla out of Las Cruces of 20 years and was nominatedto "Who's Who in America." I loved the design business, but I wanted to be a painter.

I was accepted in juried shows in Las Cruces and have been accepted in several in Taos. I moved to Taos April 1, 2008. I feel honored to be in a community of such rare talent. i am 81 years old in good health.

I show my work at Santos Y Mas in Arroyo Seco, New Mexico. I sell greeting cards, prints, and paintings at Santos Y Mas. it is an honor for me to be a part of this outstanding team.

Enjoy my work.
