Harwood Studio Artist since: 2011
I have been delighted with beads since a baby. Self taught and still learning, seeking, exploring, discovering and enjoying finding new and different beads to create wearable adornments.

What Does the Harwood Mean to You?

To me Harwood Art Center means joy, freedom and the ability to discover where my passion for expression will lead me on the journey that is my life.

Former Resident Artist

I had the good fortune to be an artist at the Harwood Art Center from 1996 – 2005. It was wonderful being in a community of artists that were so creative and supportive of each other. Having just arrived in NM in ’96, it was particularly meaningful for me because I did not know anyone in this state, and it enabled me to create immediate friendships with like minded people. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work at Harwood and believe that the [Harwood] Art Center is vital to the neighboring community.
