early childhood, I knew my destiny was to be an artist. Born and raised
in New Mexico, “The Land of Enchantment” and being influenced by my European
ancestry, I have always felt a connection to Old World images of chivalry
and forgotten civilizations. My artwork reflects the romance and adventure
of ancient cultures through mythology and legends. I feel a kinship when
painting dragons, the forgotten world of faeries, and strong women figures
of long ago.
work in pen & ink, watercolors, and acrylics. My deepest passion is
oil painting in rich jewel tones and earth colors with intricate details.
My artwork has Celtic and Pre-Raphaelite influences, with some works containing
hidden images. Whenever objects such as woven hair, celtic knots, tree
trunks, branches or vines overlap, they represent “how all things are connected
in some way”. My greatest love of creating arrives, when the artwork is
nearing completion. Hours are spent and enjoyed on the final lines, marks,
or brush strokes.
most recent work is a series of sensual faeries. Whenever I sketch or paint,
my imagination leads me to forgotten realms. My hope is that my “Enchanted
Old Worlds” take the viewer, to another time, and another place, somewhere
that could have or has been. A world when Man, Woman, Beast, and Earth
where more intertwined. If one looks closely, a glance at our ancient collective
past might be seen…
