After moving from the island of Kauai, The Garden Isle, Taos seemed just brown. But living here two years has completely changed my mind. It’s been like discovering treasure. Everything natural on Kauai is so intense. Here, it is a process of seeing anew and absorbing.
First, it was the wide open spaces — seeing for miles, the mesa, the subtle color changes. Then, the little things I passed on my daily walks. One morning, a beautiful burst of a pink blossom on what appeared to be nothing more than a stick. Then a lovely yellow flower on a dusty old cactus. I was hooked!
My newest series of paintings, “The Blooming Desert,” is a result of that fascination. They can be seen in my studio by contacting me at (808) 651-4508, or at the Taos Artist Collective near the Plaza.
