In my art I hope to capture the natural beauty that captivates so many people who either visit or live in the Southwest, especially in New Mexico.  Through watercolor and encaustic painting, I express the “magic” that I see in the landscapes, skies and culture of the Southwest.  Depending on how the creative spirit moves me, I may choose to paint in a style that is loose but realistic, representational or abstract.  Regardless of the subject or style, my intention remains the same… to have the viewer connect with the Southwest’s diverse beauty.
