Contemporary Abstract Artist 
Pagosa Springs, CO

2017  was a wonderfuly exciting year for my art & design business.
I participated in a number of  solo and group shows, including many
that raised funds for local nonprofits        I taught my workshop, 
Courage in Creativity  to very cool participants in very cool
places around the US.        I'm grateful that my work now hangs in more
wonderful galleries and that I've been featured in Art Tour International
and Art Blend Magazines. I'm also honored to be a founding board member of the NEW Pagosa Springs Arts Council - an organization that will support the arts community and foster artist collaboration in Pagosa Springs. 

2018 promises to be even better! I'm rolling out, 
Art Without Limits , an intermediate abstract workshopfor those who wish to learn more abstract tools, skills, and practices. I've been invited back to a number of art centers and I'm thrilled to have my inaugural reception and workshop at the Corrales Art Center in Corrales, NM. Plus, I scheduled
12 adult & teen workshops in Pagosa Springs, in 2018, which will be held at the Ross Aragon Community Center .     
.And finally, I'm SO excited to be a lead artist on AFTA - Artists for the Animals - an artisan coalition in Texas that will benefit Dog Lodge Sanctuary - a permanent and loving home for senior and special needs dogs.
