I have been an artist all of my life. My interests include folk art, jewelry, mixed media, spiritual art, landscapes, altered art and more recently digital art. I am influenced by the art and craft of Latin American artists and the folk art of artists throughout the world. Frida Kahlo has long been my creative muse. In the past few years I have been creating images with vintage postcards and other antique ephemera altering them with Photoshop & Painter. I also enjoy creating original paintings with Painter & Photoshop. In 1985 after living in California for 15 years I returned to my native town in Santa Fe, New Mexico and became active in the art community there. After taking a workshop on the traditional santo painting of New Mexico with reknown santero Charlie Carrillo I was hooked and began painting the santos of my Hispanic roots. My art has been exhibited in galleries in New Mexico, California, and more recently Tennessee and can be found in private collections worldwide. For a while I sold santo ornaments to the Smithsonian Institute for their southwest gift shop. I have also painted one of a kind furniture that was sold through Foreign Traders in Santa Fe. I now live in the rural south and continue to exhibit my work in the area.
