ABOUT

My artwork has been labeled “Southwest Whimsical” as I love bright, bold colors and my subjects are images from scenes of the Southwest and Mexico. I am inspired by burst of colors in our harsh desert landscapes such as in the brilliance of a bright pink cactus blossom or a shimmering adobe wall under the desert moonlight sky.

 

The medium that I choose to work in is chalk pastel. The chalks allow me to achieve the bright pigments with beautiful blends and free flowing combinations of colors.

 

Currently my work can be seen at the Fountain Hills Artists' Gallery, On The Edge Gallery in Scottsdale, and Van Gogh's Ear Gallery in Prescott, AZ.
