- I love painting with bold colors, and southwest art or really the southwest itself is a color spectrum of life and spirit…how fun it is to create from a palette of color.
- My new kick in life is studying Native American icons whether it is jewelry, art or the traditional tribal dance filled with costumes and stories. I am especially fond of Zuni Indian jewelry. It is so breathtaking with all its’ lapidary work so intricately detailed by hand…very inspirational for me.
- When I need to shut down, and just paint…I listen to a good audio book while examining my books of southwestern images for reference, and dive into this world of creativity…these art works are the results…
