Harwood Studio Artist since: 2012
Professionally I've worked in Design and Branding for over 20 years. Most of my work is done on a computer now, but I have always loved the classic (considered old-fashioned now) graphic design mediums  - letterpress printing, vintage lettering, screen and block printing, etc. I really love the inconsistencies and unpredictable imperfections of those hands-on mediums. About a year ago I decided to rent a studio at the Harwood and learn how to screenprint. It's been a great outlet for me to experiment freely.

What Does the Harwood Mean to You?

My studio at the Harwood is my own personal space to experiment, to get away from the chaos of daily life, relax and be completely self-indulgent. There is a very welcoming feeling here, and I am constantly inspired by the amazing creativity and talent all around me.

Current Studio Artist

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. 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.
