Harwood Studio Artist since: 2012
It took me a while to get started with my art, sort of a second wind, but now I consider myself a mixed media artist because I like to work with everything – acrylic, watercolor, pastel, colored pencil and even paper and fabric.  And if I am working with fabric I will paint it and then make it into something usable – like “couch art”. I am also a master wire jewelry artist and instructor and have been working with wire and teaching basic techniques for almost 20-years. 

When I am making jewelry, I love to use pearls and combine them with the wire, stones and crystals. Wire almost feels alive with its movement, twisting and swirling wherever it wants to go. 

What Does the Harwood Mean to You?

As a new artist to the Harwood Art Center I have found it to be a welcoming place to work and I think it is a great community asset.  I look forward to learning more about all of the annual events and participating in them.

I seem to have known about Harwood Art Center since I moved to Albuquerque in 1996. I have always enjoyed seeing the exhibits there and visiting the studios when they are open to the public. I have taken a couple of classes there, and this last year I have taught a class there myself. This last spring I also had an exhibit of my wire sculptures and wall works at Harwood. I am pleased to contribute work which supports the work of the [Harwood] Art Center.
