Polymer offers me a wide variety of creative possibilities. Color is my magic and with the clay anything is possible, it's great fun. Taos is a great place to be a retired art teacher who loves to make jewelry.
Art for me is a spiritual journey. My muse is Nature—a never ending parade of beauty and aesthetic meaning. I really love the edges of the day; sunrise and sunset but it is difficult to paint at these times—the light is fleeting, so I photograph what I see and paint at home. I love the desert; it is a re-visitation of my childhood when the parents would take us camping in Anza-Borrego. Painting the desert--it has spiritual meaning for me: it is enduring. The desert makes the most of all the resources available and is beautiful in spite of the limitations. This is what I try to do in my life.
