I have lived in Taos since 1978. I opened my gallery Claireworks in Arroyo Seco in 1997. The gallery features my original jewelry, ceramic murals and bronze sculpture.
The general community views me primarily as a jeweler; however, I have a body of work less known to the public. I have won prizes in National Exhibits for my ceramic work and my sculpture is in important collections. In October, I will have an exhibit at the Magpie Gallery called Clay Then and Now to honor my work in the ceramic media including life size sculptures.
Visitors to my home studio in Arroyo Hondo will get to view wood block prints, mono-types and paintings.
