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 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!
