Full Artist Statement: 

Living in the desert Southwest, my perspective of beauty is affected by hard surfaces, blinding light and deep, dark shadows.  Light and shadows, the subtle play of color into them and the relationships of shapes are fascinating to me.  Trained in watercolor by New Mexico artists David Vega Chavez and Howard Wexler, oil paints and book binding at Santa Fe Community College and currently in fibers, art history and theory at Western New Mexico University where I am seeking a Bachelors of Fine Arts, have honed my skills and sharpened my personal vision.  
I am spiritual in my art in the sense that I seek the guidance of the spirit in my work and believe that creativity is a divine quality.  Praising beauty in the world around me through that creativity gives me an outlet to express gratitude to God for all that he has given me.  The desert beauty is an acquired taste, as is beauty in everyday objects around us.  In my work, I hope to point out the beauty in these things through color, design or value contrasts.
