Harwood Studio Artist since: 2004
I split my time between creating mixed media paintings and designing/silk-screening a line of t-shirts.  I was born in Memphis, Tennessee into a family of artists and eccentrics and have lived in California, Maine and New Hampshire, but I’ve spent the most time New Mexico.  In 1987, I graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a Bachelor of Science in Botany and a minor in Chemistry, and began a career in textile design, earning national recognition for my surface designed hand woven clothing. Through classes at the Harwood Art Center and mentoring from influential New Mexico artists, I began painting in 2005.  My paintings have been included in exhibits at the Albuquerque Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe,  Mariposa Gallery in Albuquerque, and Patina Gallery, in Santa Fe.  My t-shirts can be found on my website, Etsy, and locally at the Mariposa Gallery and Izzy Marin.

What Does the Harwood Mean to You?

Harwood Art Center is my sanctuary and my connection to the community.  It’s unusual and amazing to have these opposing forces satisfied in one place.  The Harwood community enriches my life because of studio artists, staff, teachers, and exhibits.

Current Harwood Artist

I have been a Harwood Artist since 2001. Four different spaces, four different lifetimes and across media. Sometimes my studio has been a graphic arts workshop, sometimes a painting studio, sometimes a production pottery shop, but being here is always wonderful. From late nights preparing materials for art students to mornings doing pre-natal yoga while I waited for the older child to be done with his work at Escuela del Sol, it is wonderful to reflect on all the art adventures I’ve had over the years at Harwood. The very first night I lived in Albuquerque was spent at a film program at Harwood and from that moment I knew this was an organization I wanted to be involved with. That was 17 years ago and the dream of that first night has blossomed into a reality and a community of which I am proud to be a part!
