Originally from North Carolina, I moved to New Mexico in 1986. Only days after receiving my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of North Carolina, I was in Albuquerque, excited about starting a new life in a new place. I have been here ever since, raising my family, painting and enjoying the beauty of this state.
I painted in oils for years, but made the change to acrylics several years ago. I love the brilliant colors, the quick drying time and the durability of acrylics.
It is a blessing to live in an area with wonderful light and beautiful subject matter all around me. We have beautiful sunsets, mountain views, hot air balloons, cactus, wildflowers, and every season brings something else wonderful.
